Visits to immigration detention facilities

Visit information can change at any time in line with health advice. The health and safety of detainees, staff and visitors remains our key priority. The Department continues to monitor the COVID-19 situation in each state and territory and will follow the advice of relevant health authorities.​

For further information on COVID-safe visits to immigration detention facilities (IDF), see detention visitor program.

All visitors must comply with new safety measures such as physical distancing and screening measures. You must not visit an IDF if you:

  • are unwell or recently been unwell
  • have been in contact with someone who is unwell
  • have symptoms of cold and flu, or
  • have recently visited an area which is the subject of a public health alert.
