Immigration Act

From Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia

Immigration Act (with its variations) is a stock short title used for legislation in many countries relating to immigration.

The Bill for an Act with this short title will have been known as a Immigration Bill during its passage through Parliament.

Immigration Acts may be a generic name either for legislation bearing that short title or for all legislation which relates to immigration.
