Dear Immigration Department,

I am writing to make an information request regarding immigration detainees with minor dependents. May I know,

1) In the case where the sole adult carer of a minor dependent is detained, are there any measures to provide care for the child?
2) In what circumstances, if any, could a minor dependent be taken into detention with their adult carer?
3) In the case where a minor dependent is held in detention with their adult carer, are there child-specific procedures or guidelines for the treatment and care of child detainees? If yes, would you be able to provide these procedures or guidelines?

Any relevant information would be greatly appreciated. Thank you for your help.

Yours faithfully,

Raquel Amador

Dear Raquel Amador,
I refer to your request for access to information on 14 February 2022.
 Further to our interim reply of 21 February 2022, our reply is provided
as below, please.

In general, a child shall not be under any circumstances left unattended.
 When necessary, our officers may seek professional assistance from the

You may wish to know that there is no statutory provision on receiving a
child, not otherwise liable to be detained, into detention of the
Immigration Department.

I hope the above information is useful to you.
