Ireland Is a Favorite Residence Destination for Foreigners

In a previous survey regarding EU citizenship preferences among nationals of third countries, many expressed a preference for Irish citizenship. They cited the benefit of obtaining the right to work and live in the UK by holding an Irish passport, making Ireland a popular choice among respondents.

Based on data provided by Schengen Statistics, European countries have collectively issued 3.4 million residence permits in 2022. As the same source points out, Poland emerged as a leader in this regard, registering the highest number of permits issued for this year.

Ireland, closely followed, secured second place with 85,793 residence permits issued. Schengen Statistics further revealed that this figure means that approximately 169 permits were obtained for every 10,000 individuals in Ireland.
