But exodus is an exit, but a mass exit for that matter, don't you think invasion would be a better antonym.

Sahjeet said: (Apr 13, 2013)  
No, exodus is an exit therefore entry would be the antonym. Invasion cannot be the opposite in this case as the 'exodus' simply means exit.

What is immigration mean?

Jay said: (Sep 10, 2014)  
Immigration means going from one place to another.

Madhuri said: (Jan 26, 2015)  
Migration means going from one place to another. Immigration is the antonym of Exodus.

This question is flawed. It is easy to be "wrong" by the test and yet be correct in actuality.

Here's one example:

Definition of Exodus: A mass departure of people, especially emigrants.

So, you could say that an Exodus = A mass emigration.

Opposite of Emigrant = Immigrant.

So, you could say that the opposite of an Exodus is a mass IMMIGRATION.

I agree. It should be immigration.

Hing said: (Apr 17, 2016)  
Exactly! Exodus involves emigrants, so immigration involves immigrants.

Exodus means movement of citizens out of a country or region due a reason such as war, famine etc.

Hence the correct antonym will be Immigration as it means the "influx of foreign citizens into a country or region for various reasons".

Saurav said: (Aug 31, 2016)  
I don't think, entry is a better option here. Because exodus means many people leave a place same time. Immigration means to come to leave to a country.

Please make corrections in the answer so that when we take a test it shouldn't show the wrong answer as right.

Immigration is the right answer.

Sameekshya said: (Jun 3, 2018)  
Immigration is an appropriate answer.

Samav Pandya said: (Jun 6, 2018)  
Immigration is right.

Sudarshan said: (Oct 12, 2018)  
Yes, I think immigration should be the correct answer.

Savita said: (Dec 20, 2018)  
Entry is correct, because exodos refers to exit.

Rutika Shinde said: (Mar 28, 2020)  
Immigration is right. I too agree.

Kallol Saha said: (May 3, 2020)  
Immigration would be the answer.

How an antonym can be the answer of this? unless it is saying about different land.

Piyali said: (Jul 6, 2021)  
Immigration also means entry but in a legal manner, Entry is a very uncommon word if we compare it with EXODUS.
