Hello Hussam,
 
emigration is leaving your home country to move to another.
--> After the fall of the Berlin Wall, East Germany suffered "brain drain" due to mass emigration.
 
immigration is arriving in a new country, having left your home country.
--> Many right-wing politicians are opposed to excessive immigration.

Simplified a bit, you immigrate to a country, and emigrate from a country.
