 Counter People Smuggling Communication

The Australian Government has introduced a tough new policy for managing illegal maritime arrivals by boat to Australia called Operation Sovereign Borders (OSB).

OSB is a military-led border security initiative to stop the boats, to prevent people risking their lives at sea in the hands of criminals, and to preserve the integrity of Australia’s immigration program.

The new policy introduces a rapid transfer process where asylum seekers are transferred to either the country of Papua New Guinea or country of Nauru within 48 hours of arrival in Australia. The new policy also includes the expansion of processing centres in both locations as well as the turning back of asylum seeker boats.

The OSB Joint Agency Taskforce is delivering a range of offshore communication activities to inform people considering coming to Australia illegally by boat that the rules have changed and they will never get to Australia.

An Arabic factsheet on OSB can be found at the following link:
