Net migration to Germany thus fell slightly from 2017, when it had stood at 416,000 people.

The phenomenon can be attributed mostly to foreigners, with 87 per cent of those who moved to Germany holding a foreign passport, according to the statistical office.

A year earlier, it had been 89 per cent.

In 2017, a total of 167,000 people returned to Germany, while the number reached 202,000 last year.
