In the first two months of the pandemic, i.e. in March and April 2020, the estimated number of foreigners staying in Poland fell by 223 thousand, which represents a decline by 10.1% from the figure at the end of February.

The following study report presents preliminary estimates concerning changes in the number of foreigners staying in Poland before 1st of March and at the end of April 2020 in the light of data from administrative registers and information on foreigners arriving in and leaving Poland provided by the Border Guard.

The results should be treated as experimental and tentative.  The study is based on a number of assumptions reflecting the availability and quality of data sources used to produce the estimates.
