Migration Amendment (Removal and Other Measures) Bill 2024

The Migration Amendment (Removal and Other Measures) Bill 2024 aims to enhance the Australian migration system's integrity by amending the Migration Act 1958. This bill focuses on strengthening the legislative framework concerning the removal of certain non-citizens on a removal pathway from Australia, including those who are unlawful non-citizens and holders of specific bridging visas, such as the Subclass 070 (Bridging (Removal Pending)) visa.

Key aspects of the bill include establishing clear legislative expectations for the behaviour of non-citizens on a removal pathway, emphasising their cooperation with the Australian government's efforts for their prompt and lawful removal. To facilitate this, the bill grants the Minister the power to direct non-citizens on a removal pathway to cooperate with removal efforts. Non-compliance with such directions constitutes a criminal offense, attracting penalties that underscore the importance of adhering to lawful removal processes.

Additionally, the bill introduces provisions allowing the Minister to designate a country as a removal concern country, thereby affecting visa application processes for nationals of that country. This measure aims to encourage international cooperation in facilitating the lawful removal of non-citizens.

The bill also proposes amendments to enable the reassessment of protection findings for non-citizens on a removal pathway, further supporting the objective of a well-managed and effective migration system.
