Over a number of years the Falkland Islands Government have been reviewing and looking to update their immigration laws and procedures. The review formally started in 2013 and has seen a number of papers and proposals considered by the Government since that time. Two large papers were considered by the Islands Government in 2015, with a number of principles being agreed and legislation subsequently being updated.
The Falkland Islands Government announced the appointment of Mr. Andrew Almond-Bell as the new Director of Emergency Services & Island Security. He will succeed Barry Marsden who left the Islands earlier this year.
