If the results were a bit more recent, I'd bet that Venezuela would be on there now

Why does the first country have so many immigrants to Spain?

As EU citizens, they can enter without visa restrictions, and theirs is a Romance language, so Spanish would be easy for them to learn.

this and Romania's economy is in the toilet, wages are very low, Spain might not have a strong economy but it's a step up from where they're coming from.

I think many germans, britons, etc. living in Spain might be old people, enjoying their retirement there.

They're from India... a thousand years ago. Don't think this is based on where people's ancestors were a millennium ago.

Kind of surprised the Philippines aren't on the list, considering their history, eagerness to leave the country and a decent population Spanish speakers there. Although there are plenty of people in South American that speak it as a first language and willing to work for minimal wages.

I think it's because less than 56,282 of them have moved there! ;-)

I think that's definitely why Mexico isn't on there. So many Mexicans already have family or friends in the US so why fly and try to get into Spain when your so close. I wouldn't be surprised if there were more Mexicans in Canada then in Spain.

Got 19/20 by guessing Arab countries in the south, all of Latin America and some random European Countries. Given that logical train of thoight, China didn't even cross my mind.

I once had my necklace stolen by Romanian immigrants when I was in Spain. I should've thought of that....
