Department of Immigration and Fraud Protection - Scam Alert

Scam alert

We are concerned by recent scam phone calls, claiming to be from the Department of Immigration and Border Protection, with the caller requesting money to progress visa applications.

The caller identifies themselves as an employee of the Department, and typically introduces themselves using a first name. The phone number might appear to be a genuine official number.

The Department of Immigration and Border Protection will never request money over the phone.

If you are contacted by someone claiming to be from the Department who requests money, report it using our Immigration and citizenship online report

We are aware of a fake Department of Immigration and Border Protection website. Please ensure you use our official website (http://www.border.gov.au) to find information about visas and citizenship products, and lodge applications.

It is your responsibility to maintain your safety and personal information online. You can report instances of alleged fraud on our website at:http://www.border.gov.au/Trav/Visa/migration-fraud-and-scams
