Where a person is arrested for an offence1 at a place other than a police station2, an immigration officer may enter and search any premises in which the person was when arrested, or in which he was immediately before he was arrested, for relevant evidence (that is evidence relating to the offence for which the arrest was made)3. The power may be exercised only if the officer has reasonable grounds for believing that there is relevant evidence on the premises, and only to the extent that it is reasonably required for the purpose of discovering relevant evidence4.
