Fidesz, in a coalition with the smaller Christian Democratic People's Party, has held a two-thirds supermajority in Parliament for the past eight years, allowing it to change the constitution without a referendum.
Marine Le Pen, leader of France's National Front, congratulated Orban and said the "mass immigration promoted by the European Union has been rejected once again".
The legislation dubbed a "Stop Soros" bill will the among the first laws passed by the new parliament, a Fidesz spokesman said on Monday.
Orban campaigned on a promise of a legislative package dubbed "stop Soros", in reference to the Hungarian-born USA financier, that was laced with numerous thinly-veiled references to Soros' Jewish heritage.
The laws would force the NGOs working with migrants and asylum seekers to get government permits; income received from overseas would be taxed; advocacy groups could be banned from going closer than 8 kilometers (5 miles) from Hungary's borders, where asylum-seekers file claims; and foreigners without authorization to help refugees could be banned from Hungary.
Several years ago, Orban's government built a border fence to stem the flood of hundreds of thousands Middle Eastern immigrants who were fleeing ISIS violence.
Well, those elections took place yesterday, and if anything, Orban's party overperformed even the most optimistic expectations among pollsters.
Soros has rejected the government campaign against him as "distortions and lies" meant to create a false external enemy.
"The Hungarian people have defined the most important issues: these are the question of immigration and national sovereignty", Orban said.
Orban claims that the opposition - collaborating with the United Nations, the European Union and wealthy philanthropist George Soros - wants to flood Hungary with mostly Muslim migrants, threatening its security and Christian identity. "President Juncker and the commission believe that the defence of these values and principles is a common duty for all member states, without exception", Schinas said.

German Chancellor Angela Merkel congratulated Orban, a German government spokesman said, adding that she would work with his new government despite differences on migration.
Dutch far-right leader Geert Wilders was also quick to welcome the "excellent result".
Orban won his fourth term overall on a platform that openly demonizes migrants to Europe.
Near-complete results showed that Orban's right-wing Fidesz party romped home with nearly half the vote (48.8 percent), highly likely giving it a two-thirds majority and a legislative carte blanche.
The right-wing nationalist Jobbik party placed second, with 26 seats, while a Socialist-led, left-wing coalition ran third, with 20. The laws are aimed at curbing foreign funding of NGOs. He bounced back in 2010 with a two-thirds majority, a feat he repeated four years later. "This is terrifyingly serious".
The politician expressed belief that Budapest's relations with the European Union after the prime minister "received the feedback from the population that this is the right way to go" will deteriorate further.
Hungary's goal should be ethnic homogeneity, says Orban, not western Europe's false multiculturalism that extols diversity at the expense of natives.
Indeed, Orban's Hungary is a model for Europe's hardline rightists, one much more relevant than non-EU countries such as Vladimir Putin's Russian Federation or Recep Tayyip Erdogan's Turkey - although their systems share much with Orban's.
Traditionally, Budapest is the stronghold of the left and that the countryside is more right.
