emigrate or immigrate

“To emigrate” or “to immigrate”

To emigrate” is to leave your country in order to go and live in another country permanently,

while “to immigrate” is to come and live in another country permanently after leaving yours.

 

So a person who left country A

 in order to live permanently in country B

is considered to have emigrated from country A

and immigrated to/into country B.
