       AUSTRALIAN BORDER FORCE

The Government will establish an Australian Border Force (ABF) to protect the Australian community from the transnational criminal threat posed by drugs, guns and other illicit imports while facilitating the movement in and out of Australia of legitimate goods, services and people on which our prosperity depends.

The ABF will combine the border functions of the Department of Immigration and Border Protection (DIBP) and the Australian Customs and Border Protection Service (ACBPS). This will achieve more integrated, more strategic and ultimately more effective border operations in critical areas such as investigations, compliance, detention and enforcement - positioning Australia to deal with future as well as current border security challenges.
