New Website from 01st July 2015 – border.gov.au

From 1 July 2015, The Australian Customs and Border Protection Service (ACBPS) will integrate with the Department of Immigration and Border Protection (the Department) and the Australian Border Force will be established.

To support the integration, a new website will be launched at www.border.gov.au. From this date, internet searches for immi.gov.au and customs.gov.au will redirect to the new address.

Design

The new website will combine information from the Department and ACBPS websites and include new information about the ABF.

The website will have a new look and feel and will be optimised for mobile devices. There will be ongoing updates to the website after 1 July 2015.

Some pages will automatically redirected to the new location. You will need to fix any broken links, bookmarks or favourites in your system from 1 July 2015. The new URLs to specific web pages will not be available before this date.

Content

Some other websites owned by the Department will remain in their current form. These include the Minister’s and Assistant Minister’s websites, the Translating and Interpreting Service website and the Office of the MARA website.

Content from other sites owned by the Department will be integrated with the new website. For example, products and information on citizenship.gov.au and cargosupport.gov.au will be moved to the new website.

Email addresses

As part of this change, the Department’s email domain will change to firstname.lastname@border.gov.au. While information sent to existing @immi.gov.au and @customs.gov.au email addresses will be delivered to the intended recipients at border.gov.au, please update your contact details for the Department on 1 July 2015.

Applications

Applications that are currently accessed using the immi.gov.au or customs.gov.au websites, such as ImmiAccount, VEVO, ICS or the Customs Connect Facility, will not be affected by this change and will continue to function as normal.
