Migration and migrant integration
International migration is an important component, which has an impact on population numbers. INSTAT estimates the annual number of immigrants and emigrants based on the integrated migration module in the Labour Force Survey since 2015.
Statistics on foreigners with residence permits and asylum seekers in Albania are included for the first time in the Official Statistics Program 2017-2021. Through Memorandums with Institutions, these data has been made available since 2017, with a dedicated publication. Data on foreigners are provided by the Department of Border and Migration, while data on asylum seekers and citizenship are provided by the Ministry of Internal Affairs.
