Did you know? Italy ranked as the Top 5 country of destination among Filipino emigrants from 1981 to 2019, accounting for 1.67% of the overall Filipino emigration population in this period, totaling 41,714 emigrants.

According to registration data obtained by CFO, the annual count of Filipino emigrants bound for Italy was at an all-time low from 1980 to 1999, listing only an average of 66 emigrants per year. This number slowly climbed from 2000 to 2007 until a sudden upshot occurred thereafter. In 2013, the highest yearly count of Filipino emigrants bound for Italy was recorded at 4,526. In the following years, however, the annual count of Filipino emigrants to Italy decreased almost as quickly as it climbed.

Reference data covers 1981-2019.
