PIDC Legislation

The PIDC provides advice and assistance to Members in the development of effective and appropriate immigration legislation. The following materials are intended to act as an easy to access resource for Members developing new immigration legislation.

Framework for Immigration Legislation

To support Members in the development of immigration legislation the PIDC has created a two-part framework. Part A of the framework looks at the process for developing legislation, Members’ experiences and lessons learned. Part B of the framework identifies key parts and provisions for Members to consider when developing new immigration legislation. Part B was updated in 2016/ 2017 and is only available to PIDC Members .

International Instruments Relevant to Immigration

As a supplement to the above framework, the PIDC has compiled a list of international and regional instruments relevant to immigration practice and legislation. The most relevant provisions in each instrument are listed as well as the Members who are signatories.
