What is immigration?

· Emigration (from Lat. Emigro - «evict") - migration from one country to another for economic, political and personal reasons. Emigration is a voluntary relocation of individuals families, in contrast to the forced resettlement - expulsion from the country or deportation.

· In contrast to simple migration within the region or between regions of the country immigration related to departure out of the country, that is, involves crossing the border. Emigration is different from short trips with personal and business tourist travel that necessarily involves a change of residence. Emigration does not necessarily mean naturalization, acquisition or change of nationality or citizenship. Russia, in particular, allows its citizens to have dual citizenship.

Immigration policy

Nowadays immigration policy is often closely related to other policies:

Tax, tariff and trade rules that determine what goods immigrants may bring with them, what services they may perform while temporarily in the country, and who is allowed to remain like the European Union has few immigration restrictions within it.

Investment policy that permits wealthy immigrants to invest in businesses in exchange for favorable treatment, early issuance of passports and permanent resident status.

Agricultural policy that may make exemptions for migrant farm workers, who typically enter a country only for the harvest season and then return home to a developing nation (such as Mexico or Jamaica that often send such workers to US and Canada respectively).

Overcrowding that can be blamed for the spread of Tuberculosis or a house price boom

Birth rates which are low in developed nations

An important aspect of immigration policy is the treatment of refugees, more or less helpless or stateless people who throw themselves on the mercy of the state they enter, seeking refuge from poor treatment in their country of origin.

With the rise of terrorism worldwide, another major concern is the national security of nations that let people cross borders. The belief is that terrorists can come from overseas. These concerns often lead to intrusive security searches and tighter visa requirements, which can discourage immigration, temporary visitors, and even movement within countries or birth within countries. There is often pressure on nations to loosen immigration policy or inspections to enable tourism and relocation of businesses to a country, from a destabilized region.

A very good example of push and pull factors and their effect on migration can be found in the job market. Let's say that you live in a very poor country. There are very few jobs available to you that can give you the money you need to support your family. The lack of jobs pushes you to leave your home country. Let's imagine that the country next to yours has a lot of jobs to offer. The chance to get one of those much need jobs pulls you to move to that country.

Push factors Pull factors
Lack of employment or entrepreneurial opportunities Better opportunities for acquiring farms for self and children
Lack of political or religious rights Cheap purchase of farmland
Persecution or intolerance based on sex, race or sexual orientation More job opportunities
Lack of freedom to choose religion, or to choose no religion at all Higher pay
Shortage of farmland; hard to start new farms (historically) Prepaid travel (from relatives)
Oppressive legal/political conditions Better welfare programs
Struggling or Failing economy Better schools
Military draft, warfare Join friends and relatives who have already moved
Famine or drought Build specific cultural or religious communities
Cultural fights with other cultural groups Political freedom
Expulsion by armed force or coercion Cultural richness


There are some types:

Study, work


A family reunion

The first thing to consider when moving to the U.S. question - a question of visas. Of course, have read a lot of information.

The second important question - is filing. This can be accomplished in a very different variations: simple submission of documents to the embassy, ​​complete the questionnaire online, interview in the office of the company, etc. If all of the documents in order, and they are accepted, you will be invited for an interview at the embassy.

Family reunification

There are rules for determining whether a spouse, parent or child to apply for Green Card.
Wife. If one of the spouses previously married, he must have an official certificate of legal termination of marriage (divorce decree or death of a spouse).
