The USA is no longer the first choice for Germans willing to emigrate. In the meantime, more people are moving from the United States to Germany than the other way around, according to the Federal Statistical Office.
- In 2019, only 9782 Germans emigrated to the United States. That was 3.6 percent of all German emigrants. This was the first time since 1982 that the number fell below the 10,000 mark.
- The USA is only in third place after Switzerland and Austria.
- And vice versa? In 2019, 19,186 Americans moved to Germany.
