Withdrawal of the United Kingdom from the European Union (Consequential Provisions) Act 2019


No. 8 of 2019

Sections 95 and 96 amend the Immigration Act 1999 and Immigration Act 2003 to confirm that immigration officers, in considering removing or deporting a person from the State, have, in line with EU and international obligations, the power to undertake a refoulement consideration. Section 88 also includes a provision confirming that where, in making a deportation order since 31 December 2016, consideration was actually given to non-refoulement, the deportation order concerned is valid. Section 97 provides a legal basis for taking fingerprints of Irish visa and Irish transit visa applicants, to enable the continuance of the British-Irish Visa Scheme, pursuant to Common Travel Area arrangements.
