Some of the smaller countries of Asia have very high immigration rates; 87% of the population of Qatar and 70% of the United Arab Emirates were born abroad; as were 69% in Kuwait. Several other countries approach a rate of 50%. The two massive countries of China and India (both with over a billion inhabitants) see less than half a percent of their people come or go. The average Asian country is comprised of 14% immigrants.

Which countries are seeing most people emigrate? Long-suffering Palestine has had 68% of its population leave. Armenia is at 28% and Georgia at 25% and Kazakhstan at 24%. The average Asian country has seen 8% of its population cross a national border to live elsewhere.
