Privacy notice



The Privacy Act 1988 (Privacy Act) requires the Department of Immigration and Border Protection (the department) to notify an individual of certain matters when we collect personal information about them. This form is your notification of those matters.

What is personal information?

The Privacy Act provides that personal information is information or an opinion about an individual who is reasonably identifiable.

The main pieces of legislation administered by the department are the Migration Act 1958 (the Migration Act) and the Australian Citizenship Act 2007 (the Citizenship Act). These Acts include specific provisions about the collection, use, and disclosure of your information, including the type known as ‘personal identifiers’.

The Acts define personal identifiers to include:

fingerprints or handprints

an image of the face and shoulders

an audio or video recording (for the purposes of the Migration Act only and with some limited exceptions)

a measurement of height and weight

an iris scan

a person’s signature, or

any other identifier prescribed in the regulations.

What the department does and our contact details

The department’s key objectives are to:

contact us directly through any office of the department.

From whom the department will collect your personal information

Generally, the department (or its contracted service providers) collect your personal information directly from you. We may also collect your information from third parties. These include other Australian Government agencies, law enforcement agencies, foreign governments, sponsors, medical practitioners, organisations that you have nominated, education providers, employers and members of the public who contact the department with information (eg. ‘dob-in calls’).

Agencies or contractors performing immigration services

Some personal information is collected and used on our behalf by other government agencies authorised to carry out some of the department’s functions.

Personal information is also collected and used on our behalf by contractors. Examples include advanced passenger processing by airlines, computer systems, research surveys/interviews, support services for immigration detainees and medical services. Contractors are required to comply with the Privacy Act.

Collection of your personal information that is required or authorised by law

The Migration Act, the Citizenship Act and the Privacy Act authorise, and in some instances require, the department to collect certain personal information to administer the Acts.

The Migration Act

In relation to visa applications, the department:

is authorised to collect any information which is relevant to the application (see section 56 of the Migration Act), and

may require you to provide a personal identifier (see sections 40 and 46 of the Migration Act).

Visa applicants, and some visa holders, must advise the department of a change in circumstances or incorrect information provided on an application form (sections 104 and 105 of the Migration Act).

When entering Australia, the department will require you to provide certain personal information (for example passport and evidence of a visa). If it is not provided, you will be refused entry to Australia (see sections 166 and 170 of the Migration Act).

When departing Australia, the department may require you to provide certain personal identifiers (see section 175 of the Migration Act).

To identify unlawful non-citizens, the department may require:

evidence of identity and visa status, including a personal identifier (see sections 188 and 192A of the Migration Act)

a person to give documents or information about the identity or whereabouts of a person suspected of being an unlawful non-citizen (see section 18 of the Migration Act).

The department may require persons in immigration detention to provide personal identifiers (see section 258 and Division 13AA of Part 2 of the Migration Act and regulation 3.30 of the Migration Regulations).

Special provisions for collecting personal identifiers from minors or incapable persons are in Division 13AB of Part 2 of the Migration Act.

In the context of business sponsors, the department may collect personal information in accordance with the inspector powers at Subdivision F of Division 3A of Part 2 of the Migration Act.


1442i (Design date 07/14a) - Page 1

The Citizenship Act

The department may collect a range of personal information to be satisfied that an individual meets citizenship requirements.

We are authorised to request personal identifiers in relation to citizenship applications, and an application cannot be approved if the decision maker is not satisfied of your identity (see Division 5 of Part 2 and sections 17(3), 19D(4), 24(3), and 30(3) of the Citizenship Act).

Privacy Act

The Privacy Act permits collection of:

sensitive information where it is authorised under law, or for enforcement related functions, or with your consent

other personal information where it is reasonably necessary for, or directly related to, one or more of the department’s functions or activities.

The purpose for which we collect your personal information

Our primary purpose for collecting personal information is to carry out the department’s functions or activities associated with your immigration and/or citizenship pathway. We manage the following programmes:

visa and migration

refugee and humanitarian assistance

border management

visa compliance and immigration status resolution

immigration detention, removal or transfer to Regional Processing Centre


Information you provide in a visa, sponsorship or citizenship application will be used for that primary purpose.

Under the Privacy Act, information can also be used for a secondary purpose. Generally this is where you would reasonably expect the department to use or disclose your personal information and the secondary purpose is either directly related to the primary purpose (for sensitive information) or related to the primary purpose (for other personal information). For example, the information you provide in a visa application may be used in relation to your subsequent applications (including under the Freedom of Information Act 1982 and Privacy Act). Further, we may use electronic contact details you have provided to contact you about migration issues.

The consequences if your personal information is not collected by the department

If your personal information is not collected, the department may not be able to process your application for a visa or citizenship or (where relevant) provide support services to you.

Failure to collect your information may inhibit the ability of the department to meet its statutory obligations (particularly in relation to compliance), its duty of care obligations, or Australia’s international commitments.
