Every sixth Hungarian child is born abroad
Between 2010 and 2016, almost as many Hungarian children were born abroad as in Hungary in a year, szeretlekmagyarorszag.hu writes.
Since so many Hungarians live abroad, 15pc of Hungarian children are born outside the country. Between 2010 and 2016, 78 thousand children born abroad were registered as Hungarian, a survey revealed.
A Hungarian family talked about their experience to the TV show Házon kívül. They recently moved back from Scotland to Hungary, but getting settled again has not been easy. They still haven’t managed to acquire a social security number for their older child and without that, they cannot enroll the child in kindergarten, according to the head of the family.
The data concerning children born abroad was recently released on the request of LMP, and it revealed that almost 15pc of Hungarian children are born outside the country.
Between 2010 and 2016, 78 thousand children born abroad were registered as Hungarian. This data almost equals the number of children born in Hungary each year (in 2015, 91 690 children were born in the country). According to the recently released data, on average, a thousand Hungarian children are born abroad each month.
