The Migration Act provides guidance for, and a framework about, migrating to Australia, whether temporarily or permanently.
The Migration Act sets out offences that can be committed by parties who have roles in the operation of the Act, not only the people having to comply with the framework to enter Australia.
This section looks at the offences provided for in the Act that can be committed by those responsible for administration of the investigative procedures the government relies upon e.g the Australian Border Force. But it also provides for offences by others who fail to comply with lawful directions and requirements.
