Request for international movement records
Department of Home Affairs
Important – Please read this information carefully before you
complete your request. Once you have completed your request
we strongly advise that you keep a copy for your records.
Who should complete this request
Complete this request if you are seeking:
• your own international movements record(s) (where the
request includes records after 1981);
• another person’s international movements record(s)
(where the request includes records after 1981) AND you
have their written authorisation.
If you require movements records prior to 1981 please contact
the National Australian Archives www.naa.gov.au
Proof of identity
All requests should attach a scanned colour copy or a certified
copy of a photographic identity document, such as a passport
or drivers licence. Certified copies are stamped as being true
copies of the original by an authorised person.
An authorised person includes a solicitor, migration agent,
Justice of the Peace or a Commonwealth Public Servant with
5 years service.
Can another person make a request on your behalf?
If you ask another person, such as a solicitor or migration agent
to make a request on your behalf, you will need to provide
written authority, by completing Part C, allowing that person
to act on your behalf. The Department of Home Affairs (the
Department) can contact that person about your request and
send that person your documents.
If you change your solicitor or migration agent, it is important
that you advise the Department. If you nominate a solicitor or
migration agent to act on your behalf, the documents will be
sent to that person.
Are you seeking information about another person?
To assist the Department in providing information about
another person to you, you should seek that person’s written
consent at Part C. As the applicant your details will need to
be provided at Part A, and Part B should be completed with
details of the movement information you are seeking for the
named person at Part C. Both parties must provide scanned
colour copies or certified copies of the photographic identity.
