TEMPORARY ADMISSION AND CHIEF IMMIGRATION OFFICER BAIL (CIO-BAIL)
Temporary admission and chief immigration officer bail
If a client is detained under the Immigration Acts then consideration must always be given to how they can be released. In the first place verbal communications with the Immigration service may yield some results. This would be a request for Temporary Admission (‘TA’). Then representations can be made to the Chief Immigration Officer (CIO), which is effectively a request to Chief Immigration Officer (CIO) bail and there is no prescribed form for Chief Immigration Officer bail.
Temporary admission to to grant a bail is a fundamental right of the person.
