Immigrant earnings at highest level since 2008, Germany and England on the rise after new immigration cycle
The new wave of immigration is reflected in the money that the new immigrants are sending to their families, which they have left in Albania.
According to the statistics of the balance of payments of the Bank of Albania, the inflow of immigrants for the year 2022 reached 834 million euros, increasing by 9.6% compared to the same period a year ago and at the record level so far, that of the year In 2008, it was 834 million euros, which is the earliest year when the Bank of Albania reports the data.
According to the quarters, the highest value of remittances was reached in the third and fourth quarters, respectively with 216 and 242 million euros, the period when there is traditionally more inflow from immigrants due to the summer vacations and then the end-of-year holidays. The fourth quarter figure of 242 million euros is the highest ever recorded in a quarter since 2008, when the data was reported.
Immigrant remittances are following a new cycle of growth, which is mainly due to the new wave of immigration of the last decade.
The first waves of mass Albanian emigration started after the fall of the communist regime and the large number of Albanians left abroad became an important source of income for their families in Albania and for the Albanian economy as a whole.
This cycle seems to have peaked in the first decade of the new millennium, as emigrants who left in the 1990s built a life outside Albania and gradually weakened ties with their families in Albania. But, especially after 2013, a new cycle of immigration started, which is increasingly involving educated young people, who are taking advantage of the need for specialized work in different EU countries, especially in Germany.
According to Instat's estimates, Albania has a diaspora of approximately 1.7 million inhabitants, of which almost one million are scattered in different European countries.
