Elderly immigration to Hungary
AbstractIn general, younger cohorts dominate in the international migration flows, but new form of migration develops, namely, the elderly migration. The old age international movement of people is a migratory phenomenon of the last decades of the 20th century. Parallel with the accelerating ageing process, the share of long-term elderly immigrants has been growing since the middle of nineties in Hungary. In the millennium every tenth long-term immigrants staying in Hungary was 60 years old and over. The share of persons over 60 gaining Hungarian citizenship also increased and stabilised around 12 per cent. The expansion of old-aged immigrants and new citizens is not advantageous under the prevailing legal rules in case of international migration pol-icy preparing utility principles. If the elderly migration to Hungary becomes greater in level, it will be necessary to in-tervene into the spontaneous process. It is important to state that the emerging problems must be managed in a differen-tiated manner according to the types of the elderly migrants.
