Number of foreign domestic helpers held at CSD institutions.

Response to this request is long overdue. By law, under all circumstances, Immigration Department should have responded by now (details). You can complain by requesting an internal review.

Dear Immigration Department,

I am writing to make a data access request about the number of foreign domestic helpers held at CSD institutions. May I know, in each of the years between 2018-20:

a) please provide the name of each site and the population on 31 December of each year and of those how many are foreign domestic helpers

b) please provide the name of each site and the number of detainees admitted in each year and of those how many are foreign domestic helpers

If a CSV or Excel format is possible, I would greatly appreciate it. Otherwise PDF or similar would be fine as well.

Yours faithfully,

Raquel Amador

Dear Raquel Amador,

 

I refer to your two applications for access to information submitted on 19
March 2021 and our interim reply of 26 March 2021.

 

The population and admission figures pertaining to the sites and buildings
concerned are outside the purview of the Immigration Department.  The
Immigration Department thus does not have the requested information and
statistics.
