Immigration framework to be reviewed

Cabinet has approved the review of the legislative framework (laws and subsidiary legislation) governing the Department of Immigration.

The legislative framework requires modernisation and must be aligned to international standards and best practices.

The laws to be reviewed are the Immigration Act 2003, Immigration Regulations 2007, Immigration Directions, 1971, Citizenship Act 2009, Citizenship of Fiji Regulations 2009 Citizenship Appeals Tribunal Rules 2021, Passport Act 2002, Passports (Visa Exemption) Order 2002, and the Travel Document Regulations 2019.

The Department, in partnership with the Office of the Solicitor General, will undertake focused consultations with key stakeholders and extensive national consultations with users of Immigration services, to gather feedback on strengthening the legislative framework governing immigration and citizenship.

The outcome of the review process will be tabled in Cabinet.
