Moroccans are at the forefront of immigrants of European nationality


According to the latest report from Eurostat, a directorate general of the European Commission responsible for statistical information, Moroccan immigrants surpass other nationalities in the number of people acquiring citizenship in the European Union. They number 729,000, or 9.5% of all nationalities.

Moroccan citizens are ahead of Syrians who represent 7% of the total of naturalized citizens with more than 50,200 beneficiaries, followed by Albanians (40,500 people), Romanians (28,700 people) and Brazilians (24,100 people).

The European countries from which Moroccans obtained their citizenship the most are Spain, Italy and France, the report said, noting that 26.2% of Moroccans obtained Italian citizenship, 18.5% French citizenship, and 5.5% have obtained Belgian nationality, while the other immigrants are dispersed among the different countries of the continent.

This is not the first time that Moroccans have taken first place in the number of European naturalized foreign nationals. For years, the report published by Eurostat has reaffirmed that Moroccans top the list of countries with the most European nationalities.
