Immigration and Asylum Act 1999

Section 54: Extension of right to apply for bail in deportation cases

176.This section extends the right of those subject to deportation action to apply for bail under current immigration legislation. At present there is an anomaly between deportation and other enforcement cases in that persons who are subject to deportation action may only apply for bail where they have an outstanding appeal. This anomaly is removed by section 54.
