Summary/Abstract: The article examines the problems of permanent and temporary residence permit issued for foreigners, especially for Polish citizens, by the immigration authorities in Canada, Australia and the United States of America. The comparison of the three systems of immigration law demonstrates that the laws and policies in these jurisdictions are mostly similar, however there are some characteristic legal solutions for each system. Polish citizens unfortunately do not have privileged access to permanent residence permits. The immigration procedures are mostly very exacting, however the author of the article would want the politicians to be anything less than rigorous in this area. Nowadays national security and public safety seems to be the main reasons for creating and enforcing immigration law as a not permissive system on all fronts in the three countries. However, economical factors can solve the most of the immigration issues in the best and fastest way.
