Abstract: We study a sequence of nearly critical branching processes with immigration in the case where the rate of convergence of the expectation of the number of offsprings to 1 is slower than $ n^{-1}$. We provide sufficient conditions under which these processes converge in probability to a nonrandom process and prove a limit theorem for the fluctuations of nearly critical branching processes.
