Keywords:Asylum Seekers Final Rejected, Immigration Detention Center, Handling Foreign Refugees
The problems of asylum seekers and refugees that are developing at this time are problems that must be faced by the Indonesian government, as a transit and strategic country for destination countries. Indonesia is a country that has not ratified the 1951 Convention, as a result, Indonesia has no authority in the process of determining refugees status. In the process of determining refugees status, the United High Commissioners for Refugees (UNHCR) will carry out this process. When an application for protection status is rejected, the asylum seeker will be given another opportunity to appeal. however, to get the protection status still rejected, the case will be closed which is called Assylum Seekers Final rejected. This research was conducted at the Tanjungpinang Central Immigration Detention Center, which aims to describe the responsibilities, roles, and obstacles in handling asylum seekers with Final Rejected status. This study uses qualitative research methods and data collection techniques with interviews, observations and documentation conducted at the Tanjungpinang Immigration Detention Center. The results showed that after the case was closed, the asylum seekers would be transferred to an immigration detention center and change their status to detainees. Processing to the country of origin is the duty of the immigration detention house as stated in Presidential Regulation Number 125 of 2016 article 29 concerning the handling of foreign refugees.
