MIGRATION OF ASYLUM SEEKERS
In 2015, approx. 88,300 persons came to Austria to apply for asylum, i.e. as many as during the five previous years in total (2010-2014). In a historical comparison, such a high number in a single year represents an event of the type last seen in 1956, when massive numbers of refugees from Hungary came to Austria. During the past decade (2006-2015), a total of 230,680 applications for asylum were filed in Austria. Relative to the number of non-Austrian nationals registered
as immigrants during that period (1,181,041), asylum seekers accounted for 19%; however, in 2015 asylum seekers alone accounted for 41% of all immigrants.
