Home Affairs Portfolio established

20 December 2017

The Home Affairs Portfolio was established in December 2017. The Department of Home Affairs is the central department for the Portfolio. AUSTRAC, as an independent statutory agency, is transitioning to the new Portfolio together with our operational partners including the Australian Federal Police, the Australian Border Force and the Australian Criminal Intelligence Commission.

The Portfolio brings together Australia's federal law enforcement, national and transport security, criminal justice, emergency management, multicultural affairs and immigration and border-related functions and agencies, working together to keep Australia safe.
