Legislations of foreign countries on responsibility for committing offences in the field of illegal migration have been subjected to the comparative legal study. Its purpose is to identify the characteristics of criminalization and penalization of relevant offences in foreign countries and to offer proposals for improving the criminal legislation of the Russian Federation on their basis. In addition to the comparative legal method, formal legal, formal logical, dialectical and systematic methods are used in the paper. The result of the study was the creation of the author’s classification of crimes in the sphere of illegal migration, which allowed the author to formulate priority areas for improving the existing mechanism of counteraction to illegal migration in the Russian Federation. Scope of regulation: lawmaking and education. Based on the study results, conclusions on the necessity to give criminal significance to the deportation of foreign citizens and stateless persons, as well as toughening the responsibility for organizing illegal migration of several persons or a person who are prohibited from entering the state, have been drawn up.
