Illegal is Illegal

“Entry into Australia is governed by the Commonwealth Migration Act 1958.
It makes a distinction between “lawful” and “unlawful” non-citizens. A lawful non-citizen is a foreigner who holds a valid visa, while an unlawful non-citizen is a foreigner who doesn’t.
People entering Australia without a visa are not referred to as “illegal” in the Act.”
