Trade aim of the paper is to present the size and dynamics of changes in the inflow from the Central and Eastern Europe to the selected countries of continental and overseas immigration starting from the fifties till the late eighties. In the analysis there are particularly stressed international movements which took place in the late eighties. The analysis covered such countries of continental immigration as West Germany, Austria and Sweden and such countries of overseas immigration as the United States, Canada and Australia.

The results of the analysis show that in the particular decades immigration was differentiated for the analyzed countries of emigration and was connected mainly with the political events in some countries (Hungary, Czechoslovakia, Poland). The main flow of migrations from Central and Eastern Europe goes to West Germany.
