Amsterdam even more multicultural

28th June 2010, Comments 0 comments


The number of different nationalities resident in the Dutch capital continues grow, with 178 registered at present.

In 2009, one person from Lichtenstein and another from Equatorial Guinea took up residence in Amsterdam. However, a Qatari citizen either left or became a Dutch national, allowing the figure to rise by just one compared to 2008.

East Europeans Moroccans make up the biggest group of non-Dutch Amsterdam residents, followed by Turkish, German, British and Ghanaian citizens. However, the number of East Europeans is growing the most.

Many residents with foreign passports also have Dutch nationality. This means that 88 percent of Amsterdam residents are Dutch citizens.
