We are committed to building Australia's future through the well-managed movement of people.
Our diverse portfolio includes managing migration, humanitarian and citizenship policy and programmes. We work to keep Australia secure through border management and facilitate travellers crossing the border. Our organisation strives to make fair and reasonable decisions for people entering or leaving the country, ensuring compliance with Australia's immigration laws and integrity in decision-making. Every day we help people take the final step in their migration journey to become Australian citizens.
We deliver services through offices in every Australian state and territory and in 52 posts outside Australia.
From 1 July 2015, the Department of Immigration and Border Protection and the Australian Customs and Border Protection Service will be consolidated into a single Department of Immigration and Border Protection.
