Coordinator, Appeals Tribunal Secretariat
Tel: (345) 244-3606

The Immigration Appeals Tribunal is established in accordance with Section 17(1) of the Immigration (Transition) Law, 2018 (“the Law”), which shall consist of the following members:

  1. A chairperson;
  2. Up to five deputy chairpersons; and
  3. A panel of persons

all of whom shall be appointed by and hold office at the pleasure of the Cabinet.

 

 

The Coordinator and the Secretaries of the Appeals Tribunal Secretariat provide administrative and secretarial support to the IAT with the processing of appeals against the decision of the Director of WORC or the Director’s designate under Sections 37, 49 or 56(5) or of a Board other than a decision under Section 20 of the Law.

 

The IAT holds weekly meetings to hear appeals processed in accordance with the Law.

 

The majority of the documents held by the Appeals Tribunal Secretariat are exempt under section 23(1) of the FOI Law, as releasing applications, minutes and outcomes of meetings and other reports would amount to an unreasonable disclosure of personal information.  Individuals have a statutory right under the FOI Law to view their own personal information held by public authorities, and such information may be released to a third party if there is overriding public interest in the disclosure, but FOI requests must be made for these records in all cases and the Information Manager will make a decision on each application.
