Migration gain from foreign nationals increased in Espoo

In April–June, 2,610 more foreign nationals moved to the Helsinki region than away from it. The migration gain from foreign nationals increased by a little under 200 people when compared to the corresponding period the year before, as the incoming migration grew.  The migration gain from foreign nationals increased also in other parts of the country.

In April–June, the migration gain from foreign nationals was 963 in Helsinki, 804 in Espoo, 583 in Vantaa and 242 people in the KUUMA municipalities.

The migration gain from foreign nationals has almost doubled in Espoo during the first half of the year compared to the first half of 2018, but in Helsinki and in Vantaa, the migration gain from foreign nationals decreased clearly. Foreign nationals migrate to the Helsinki region from other parts of Finland as well as from abroad.
