Australia's borders are closed to unauthorised maritime arrivals.

The Australian Government is committed to protecting Australia's borders, combatting people smuggling in our region, and importantly, preventing people from risking their lives at sea.

Operation Sovereign Borders is a military-led border security operation, established in 2013 to deliver on this commitment.

There is only one way to gain entry into Australia — with a valid Australian visa.
