NET OVERSEAS MIGRATION - PROCESSING CHANGES AND DATA UPDATES
The Department of Immigration and Border Protection (DIBP) is progressively rolling out new technologies to streamline and strengthen border operations. Coinciding with the roll-out of Departure SmartGates there has been an increase in outgoing passenger cards not being collected due to passengers failing to place their cards into the drop boxes.
To address recent and previous increases in missing passenger cards the ABS has introduced a new method to the Overseas Arrivals and Departures system to accommodate higher numbers of missing cards. As previously advised the introduction of the improvements would lead to additional revisions in this release of Australian Demographic Statistics (cat. no. 3101.0). These revisions have effected NOM from December quarter 2014 to September quarter 2015 and consequently ERP for the same quarters. For further information see paragraph 16 - 18 of the Explanatory Notes.
