Protecting our borders
Customs and Border Protection plays an important role in protecting Australia's borders from the entry of illegal and harmful goods and unauthorised people, while fostering the legitimate movement of people and goods across the border.
International and inter-agency cooperation play a vital role in protecting our borders.
We work closely with the Department of Agriculture to ensure that both agencies continue to look for opportunities to improve effectiveness and efficiency in managing common border protection and biosecurity functions.
This strategic relationship is described in a Memorandum of Understanding (MOU) between the two agencies.
