Default DIBP name change

First I've heard of it, but the Department of Immigration and Border Protection is no more. I pity the people who have only just stopped calling it DIAC


Welcome to the Department of Home Affairs
On 20 December 2017, the Home Affairs Portfolio, including the Department of Home Affairs, was formally established.

The establishment of the Portfolio brings together Australia's federal law enforcement, national and transport security, criminal justice, emergency management, multicultural affairs and immigration and border-related functions and agencies, working together to keep Australia safe.

Yeah they rejigged them around the same time as the Queensland ones which were rearranged after the state election. Pain in the bum for the staff and annoying and confusing for the public!

At least all their links now redirect automatically - do you remember the days when we had to change every forum link manually when the Dept changed its name? Dead links everywhere!
