During the past years there have been lot of changes in Australia for the immigration officials and visa applicants who also have to face a very challenging environment. Department of Immigration and Border Protection (DIBP) name changed from The Department of Immigration and Citizenship annual report of 2012/2013 says that its a very busy year for them full of activities.
They approved nearly 4.7 million visa application which include temporary and permanent visas, had to manage 33 million movements of their boards and also almost  2.5 million calls were answered at their call centres.The DIBP secretary said that the change is a very unprecedented change for the whole department and the employees and everyone now is operating in a very challenging environment where all the operations are very unpredictable.

Bowles also said that people are complying with the Australian migration system, and more than 99% from the 5.1 million temporary entrants which entered Australia during that year complied with their visa rules.
Compliance without the visa conditions has to be voluntary, but compliance officers caught 15,000 acts of illegal citizens said Bowles. SillsSelect which was introduced in July 2012 has contributed a lot to the migration system as number of people arriving not the skilled migration selection system grew from 5000 to 190,000 in 2012-2013.
