What we have learnt from the responses to 2022-23 Budget Estimates Questions on Notice

The responses to Senate Questions on Notice after the 2022-23 Budget Estimates round were published on 19 August 2022.

We analysed the questions put to the Department of Home Affairs. Below is a summary of the most relevant information with a link to download them. Sometimes, little information is provided in response to a question on notice. We tried to include only the responses that provided relatively comprehensive and new information.

Unfortunately, in its responses to most of the questions, the Department of Home Affairs only provided information as of 31 January 2022. We believe providing information from 8 months ago defies the purpose of most of the questions and is very disappointing.

We have now updated the statistics pages to include graphs from the following information, and have provided links below to those pages.

Onshore immigration detention:

Offshore processing:

Transitory people in Australia:

Visa cancellations:

Removals and returns (offshore and onshore):

TPV/SHEVs:

Migration Program (focus on Afghanistan):
