Advance Passenger Processing System

Australia's Advance Passenger Processing (APP) system is internationally acknowledged as the most advanced border control system operating anywhere today. All international flights to Australia are subject to mandatory APP reporting.

In addition to providing advance reports on passengers, the APP system allows the department to issue passenger boarding directives to airlines in real time if the passenger does not have a valid Australian visa or valid Australian or New Zealand passport. In this way, Australia is able to prevent people arriving in Australia by air when they do not have an authority to travel to Australia.
