Detention Centres for Vietnamese Migrants
The CSD manages two centres, Green Island Reception Centre and High
Island Detention Centre, for the detention of VMs and VIIs. The former is
used to accommodate VIIs temporarily for quarantine purposes and the
latter is the only major detention centre for VMs and VIIs in Hong Kong.
Services for the VMs under the auspices of the United Nations High
Commissioner for Refugees (UNHCR) in High Island were further
reduced during the year, in line with the policy set by the UNHCR.
Services provided by voluntary agencies in the High Island Detention
Centre included education, baby clinics and outings for minors. Other
essential services, such as the issuance of clothing and relief items, are
provided by the CSD.
