Romanian becomes second most common non-British nationality among UK residents

Romanian has become the second most common non-British nationality in the UK, figures show.

The number of Romanian nationals living in the UK in 2017 was estimated to be 411,000 – a jump of 25 per cent on the previous year, and the largest increase for any country.

Polish remains the most common non-British nationality, with an estimated one million in the UK.

Romania has overtaken the Republic of Ireland and India to move from fourth to second place in the list.

Some 350,000 Irish nationals lived in the UK in 2017, while there were 346,000 Indians.

The figures, from the Office for National Statistics (ONS), show the total number of non-British nationals living in the UK in 2017 was 6.2million, up 4 per cent on 2016’s total of six million.

That is a smaller rise than that recorded between 2015 and 2016, when the number rose by 8 per cent.

Nicola White of the ONS migration statistics division said: ‘Non-UK born and non-British populations continued to increase in 2017, as more people continued to come to the UK to live than move to live abroad for a year or more.’
