Immigration and Asylum Act 1999

Schedule 6: Registration

266.Paragraph 2 requires the Commissioner to register an applicant who is competent and fit to provide immigration advice or services, and allows registration subject to certain restrictions (eg an immigration adviser may be permitted to give advice on immigration matters but not on asylum matters).

267.Paragraph 3 provides the Commissioner with the power to require applications for continued registration and to determine the format and content of these applications. It also provides that the Commissioner must cancel registration where he considers that an applicant for continued registration is no longer competent or fit to provide immigration advice or services. The Commissioner also has the power to vary the extent of the registration by making the registration subject to the restrictions referred to in paragraph 266 above, or by making the registration have full effect.

268.Under paragraph 4 of Schedule 6 a person who is convicted of an offence under the 1971 Act of facilitating illegal entry or of altering immigration documents or obstructing an immigration officer or other person acting in the execution of the 1971 Act is disqualified from registration or continued registration.
