  1. Kiribati - Migrant workers - Law, Act

    Kiribati Immigration Act 2019 (Act No. 10 of 2019). - Legislation on-line

    Adoption: 2019-10-10 | KIR-2019-L-113881

    The Kiribati Immigration Act 2019 replaces the Immigration Ordinance 1980. This new Act is necessary to make the immigration legislation fair and compliant with international obligations, but at the same time offering the security necessary to effectively manage Kiribati's border.

    The key changes include:
    (1) a visa system that provides for greater clarity and flexibility in managing non-citizens' travel to and stay in Kiribati, and is consistent with Kiribati's international obligations;
    (2) enabling more flexibility to allow the Minister of Foreign Affairs and Immigration (the Minister) to delegate certain decision-making to officials, and enabling electronic decision-making in future;
    (3) a deportation process that is more efficient for immigration officers while maintaining fairness for those subject to deportation;
    (4) incentives for third parties (employers, education providers, and carriers) to comply with their immigration obligations;
    (5) more powers for compliance and enforcement to provide for integrity in the immigration system;
    (6) flexible monitoring and detention provisions that maintain a commitment to human rights; and
    (7) the ability to collect and use specified biometric information in future for identity verification and share personal information about non-citizens with appropriate agencies.
