Six in ten British voters think immigration is piling too much pressure on schools, hospitals and housing – well above the worldwide average.
A study conducted across 22 countries around the globe also revealed widespread alarm that terrorists may be posing as refugees to sneak through border controls.
Pollsters Ipsos MORI found that the UK is one of the countries most worried about the pressure placed on public services by rising immigration levels, with 59 per cent concerned.
This compares to an average of 50 per cent worldwide.
Some 49 per cent of Britons think there are too many immigrants in the UK, which is in line with most countries worldwide.
Almost four in ten also say immigration has made it harder for native Britons to get a job.
Just 31 per cent of those surveyed in Britain support closing our borders to refugees – but 63 per cent believe terrorists are pretending to be refugees.
Across all of the countries, four in ten say that their country should close its borders to refugees entirely.
Concern about migrants integrating into British society is in line with the global average, with 40 per cent agreeing that most refugees will integrate successfully, while 47 per cent disagree.
