The Department is responsible for managing Australia’s borders including immigration, citizenship, trade, customs, border protection and maritime security functions. The Department contributes to Australia’s prosperity, economy and national security.
We aspire to be Australia’s trusted global gateway. We will be the conduit through which legitimate travellers, migrants, potential citizens and goods can pass, and we will also be able to close the gate against those who intend to circumvent our border controls.
Our mission is to protect Australia’s border and manage the movement of people and goods across it.
