If an immigrant is detained we give consideration as to how the person detained can be released. In the first place verbal communications with the immigration service may yield some results. Then representations are made to the Chief Immigration Officer (CIO) that the person detained be released on Temporary Admission (TA).
The Immigration Service reviews the detention on a regular basis so it is important that all relevant information is put before them: e.g. any change in the detainee's health, distress to family, or more favourable conditions should release be considered (e.g. a new address becoming available).
If the detainee is released they will usually be required to comply with conditions. The usual conditions are:
1) Residence at a specified address.
2) Reporting to Police Station or /Immigration Service.
3) Sureties. These conditions can be varied by an application to an Immigration Officer or Immigration Judge.
