Using a wavy up and down movement, move your hand in front of your face from the left to the right. (If you are left handed, do a mirror image.)
Memory aid:  Think of the "blue wavy lines" that are printed across the photos on certain immigrant ID (identification) Cards.
You don't "have to" add the "person" sign to the "immigrant" sign, but if you need to distinguish between "immigration" as in the "Immigration office" and an actual person, you can add the "PERSON" sign.
