This article is to show the role of Hungary in international migration as a result of its geographical location. This former migrant sending country turned recently into a migrant receiving country. Since the turn of the millennium, more detailed, more reliable, internationally comparable and regionally detailed data are available for analysis. The authors aimed at identifying, besides the individual characteristics, the regularities of international migration that can be found here too. Hungary has been a destination country for nearly two decades and its migration strategy shifts towards a skills‐based immigration policy. At micro‐regional level domestic needs based integration objectives can be developed by using the input derived from databases of Hungarian Office of Immigration and Nationality on distribution of migrants. This article is to analyze those utilitarian elements, e.g. the age and employment distribution of foreigners, the propensity to pay taxes, the selection of where to settle down whose demographic‐economic effects, are important in respect of how integration takes place in micro‐regions and settlements.
