EU Asylum Claim Figures for 2016

Eurostat reported that in 2016, 1,204,300 first time asylum seekers applied for international protection in the Member States of the European Union, down slightly from 2015, when the figure was 1,257,030.

Syrians (334,800), Afghans (183,000) and Iraqis (127,000) remained the main citizenship of those applying.

Overall, Germany took in 722,265 last year, way more than any other country.
