Project Description

Deportation liability and Ministerial Discretion

INDEPENDENT REVIEW 2019

MBIE sought Michael’s assistance with an independent review into how decisions regarding deportation liability are made by Immigration New Zealand.

The review considered the processes that Immigration New Zealand employs to ensure that deportation liability decisions are well-informed and capable of withstanding intense public scrutiny.

MBIE and Immigration New Zealand accepted Michael’s recommendations, and have indicated that they will consider how to incorporate them into their operations. This will involve further consideration of practical elements and policy considerations, such as how the Immigration system ought to function and how its resources can be put to best use.
