Introduction

At any moment in history people did emigrate from or immigarte to what's now known as the Kingdom of Belgium. Our site will focus on those who emigrated.

No exact figurs are available for the past. Georges Picavet has assembled some interesting, but incomplete, figures on the page "Antwerp, a Port for all nationalities".

For the present we do have some recent figures (2001). There are 560.000 Belgians living outside the country at this moment.

From them reside in:
France 172.526
Netherlands66.500
South-Africa55.200
Canada40.875
USA32.500
Spain28.400
