Chapter 6: Deportation of the Aliens

If the Immigration Commission decides that the alien's permission to stay in the Kingdom should be revoked, the Immigration Commission will submit their opinion to the Minister for further consideration in revoking the Permission.
Any alien who enters or come to stay in the Kingdom without permission or when such permission expires or is revoked, the competent official will deport such alien out of the Kingdom.
The provisions of Section 19 and 20 will be applied mutatis mutandis if in the case that investigation for deportation in reference to paragraph 1 of this Section must be conducted.
In case there is an order of deportation for the alien; while waiting for the alien to be deported the competent official may order the alien to stay at any prescribed place or he may order the alien to report to him (competent official) according to a prescribed date, time, and place with Security or with Security and Bond. The competent official may also detain the alien at any given place as many be necessary.
The expense of detention shall be charged to the alien’s account.
The provision of this Section shall not apply to aliens entering and talking up residence in the Kingdom before the enforcement of the Immigration Act B.C. 2480 (1937).
Aliens being deported under this Act shall be sent back by any conveyance or route as the competent official may consider appropriate.
The expense of deportation shall be charged to the owner or person in charge of the conveyance which brought the alien into the Kingdom. If there appears to be no owner or person in charge of the conveyance, the alien committing the act against the provisions of Section 63 or 64 will have to pay the expense of deportation. The competent official shall have power to ask for deportation expenses from one of the aliens committing the offense or from all of them. However, if the alien concerned wishes to go by and other conveyance or by an other route, at his own expense, the competent official may permit him to do so.
