Glossary:Migrant transfer

This is the stable Version.

Migrant transfer is, in BPM5 (Balance of Payments Manual, 5th edition), capital transfers related to all the financial and non financial assets that migrants bring with them when they move to the host country, or when they finally return to their home country. Under BPM6 these are no longer regarded as balance of payments transactions. Their values have always been insignificant in the EU Member States and are therefore disregarded in this paper.
