Non-refoulement Claims by Former Foreign Domestic Helper Visa Holders

The request was partially successful.

Dear Immigration Department,

I would like to know the number of non-refoulement claims submitted by people who had originally been issued a Foreign Domestic Helper visa by your Department for each year from 2014 to 2019. I would also like to know how many of these claims have been substantiated.

Many thanks in advance for your assistance.

Yours faithfully,

Jade Anderson
