The article aims at indicating connections between the common immigration policy and the EU internal security. It accentuates such topics as: the degree of development of the EU common immigration policy, the immigration issues in the strategy of the EU internal security, the instruments of the common immigration policy serving the EU internal security policy, and the incorporation of immigration issues in the EU external policy. The author puts forward a thesis of growing degree of externalization of the common immigration policy. It is manifested in the growing importance of instruments aiming at the externalization of risk connected with immigration and in involving the immigration issues into the spheres of co-operation with the states outside the EU.
