Moving to a new country, applying for citizenship, and finally seeing it granted is a process many people go through every year in every corner of the world. Europe is not an exception — according to Eurostat, in 2015, 841 200 people obtained citizenship of an EU-28 Member State. But where did they come from? From another EU country or from outside the Union? The data is clear and unsurprising: a vast majority of them (86%) had previously been citizens of non-EU countries.
You can find much more info about this on Eurostat’s website or just check this handy infographic put together by Radio Free Europe to discover where those new EU citizens came from in each member state.
