There are increasingly fewer Portuguese citizens arriving in the United Kingdom, according to Britain’s Department for Work and Pensions, with the country seeing a decrease of 26 percent in the past year.

This was also the 12th consecutive quarter in which the number of new Portuguese entries registered decreased, reversing a trend seen from the 2016 referendum, following at least five years of increases.
