Net migration to UK in 2021


Net migration to the United Kingdom was estimated to be 270,000 in 2019, down from a peak of 331,000 in the year ending March 2015. Net migration prior to 2020 has been falling largely owing to Brexit and, in 2020, is expected to have fallen significantly further due to both Brexit and the COVID-19 pandemic.

What will be net migration to the United Kingdom in 2021?

This will resolve on the basis of long-term international migration statistics for the UK for the year ending December 2021 that is published by the UK Office for National Statistics.
