The UKBA has updated Chapter 31 (Detention and detention policy in port cases) of its Immigration Directorates’ Instructions (IDIs).
The Agency has also revised Chapter 55 (Detention and temporary release) of its Enforcement Manual. Everyone can only hope that the UKBA can adhere to its guidance and instructions this year.
Last year the UKBA really struggled to keep up with itself and its massively overheated and inefficient bureaucracy could not follow the procedures that they ought to have. They need people who can read and write a bit better.
The agency has also revised its guidance on referring cases between its units. The new document can be found here. Don’t let all the acronyms intimidate you: CID (Central Information Database); LIT (Local Immigration Team); Local Enforcement Units are also abbreviated so that NEYH means North East, Yorkshire and Humberside region and so forth.
