3. Immigration Case Files and Migrant Selection Documents
Immigration case files bring together correspondence between individual immigrants and the Department of Immigration on a range of issues, including the initial application to migrate, security and other assessments, travel arrangements, etc. Case files are located mainly in the correspondence series of the Department of Immigration, its state branches (from 1946) and the various Collectors of Customs (pre-1946).
