Immigration Amendment Act 2015

23 New section 86A inserted (Obligation of transit passenger)

After section 86, insert:

86A Obligation of transit passenger


During the transit period applying to a transit passenger, the transit passenger must remain—


on the craft concerned; or


in an immigration control area; or


in the custody of the Police.


If a transit passenger fails to comply with subsection (1), the relevant transit period immediately expires (and section 115(1)(f) therefore applies).
