The Department of Immigration and Emigration has planned to set up special procedures to check passengers from selected countries.

This is after increasing evidence that the country is being used as a departure point by illegal foreign asylum seekers taking boats to other destinations, mostly to Australia.

Prabath Aluthge, head of counter trafficking at the Department of Immigration noted that special security measures had been implemented to question Afghans and Pakistanis.
