Immigration Law

Citizenship and migration
 
1. Entering a country for temporary or permanent purposes.

2. In general usage, the Australian Government‘s control over persons entering Australia. Immigration is primarily controlled by the (CTH) Migration Act 1958 through a range of visas (authorities to immigrate) governed by the (CTH) Migration Regulations 1994. Australia has a system of total immigration control by which all non-citizens in Australia must have a valid visa to remain, without which they are subject to mandatory detention and removal.
