Hi - just wondering, how long does the immigration keep copies of previous applications especially paper ones?

Thank you

Migration agents must keep a client's files for 7 years. I imagine the Department keeps them much longer than that, if not forever. Older files can be found in the National Archives.

Immigration backscan the paper applications into their system so they will be kept electronically for a long time, if not forever.

Thank you. I was hoping they would keep them forever because I always try and refer to old applications.
