Romanians are the only European citizens from the top 10 nationalities who take the citizenship of one of the EU states. The ranking also includes migrants from Morocco, Syria or Brazil, according to data provided by Eurostat, the statistical office of the European Union.

Almost one million people obtained the citizenship of one of the member states of the European Union in 2022. The increase brought by the new citizens is 0.2%, compared to the population of approximately 450 million inhabitants of the EU.

“87% of those who received the citizenship of an EU country in 2022 are former citizens of third countries, while the rest belonged to another EU country, mainly Romania”, reports the website Schengenvisainfo, which processed Eurostat data.
In the ranking of the nationalities that received the status of European citizen in 2022, Romanians occupy the 4th place:
  • Morocco – 112,700
  • Syria – 90,400
  • Albania – 50,300
  • Romania – 37,700
  • Turkey – 29,700
Ukraine is in sixth place, followed by Brazil, India, the Republic of Moldova and Russia.
