The Department's key objectives in regard to immigration, refugees and citizenship are to:

  • make fair and reasonable decisions for people entering or leaving Australia, ensuring compliance with Australia's immigration laws and integrity in decision-making
  • support migrants and refugees to settle in the community and participate in Australian society
  • promote Australian citizenship and a multicultural Australia.

At the same time, the government looks to the department to ensure the integrity of Australia's borders. Border security is a key component of Australia's national security arrangements and the department works actively with other countries to curb the capacity of people smugglers and terrorists to circumvent border controls.
