CHANGES IN THIS ISSUE

On 1 October 2014, DIBP transitioned to a new provider of passenger card processing. A number of releases of Overseas Arrivals and Departures, Australia (cat. no. 3401.0) were delayed due to passenger card processing issues as announced by the Department of Immigration and Border Protection. The ABS has increased quality assurance processes for June 2015. To ensure quality and accuracy, both input and output data have been thoroughly tested for each of the variables that are collected from the Australian passenger card.
