Regulations as made
These regulations amend the Migration Regulations 1994 to create greater efficiencies in border processing at international ports. In particular, the amendments will reduce the processing burden for travellers at international ports using a SmartGate (or other authorised system) by removing the requirement to present a physical passport if details of their passport are already held electronically and can be used to establish identity.
