I have had them dig out passenger cards from archives from 30+ years ago.

You wouldn't be affected anyway, as you are an honorable and law-abiding Australian citizen.
Thanks for the compliment Nick :-)

When we went through Brisbane last month i think that less than half the ones i saw put the cards in the box for them.

Seems like a waste of time now.

There could be one less bit of paperwork standing between you and your flight or even better, your airport lounge from next year, as the Federal Government looks to ditch those green departure forms for outbound travellers

The cards would be put out to pasture in favour of automated outbound SmartGate passport readers, which have already been installed at most international airports around the country.

The review of outgoing passenger cards (OPCs) "is anticipated to be completed by early 2016", a spokesperson for the Department of Immigration and Border Protection told Australian Business Traveller.

Wow! This is a great topic! I didn't know that these cards could have such an impact. I remember the first time I had to fill one out, my fiance (an Aussie citizen) asked the lady who collected them in Perth why they needed them. She stated it was just for statistics and not important. So glad to know that they ARE important!

Ok, so when I leave next week to bring my boys back here next month, we're all on ETA's until I lodge the 189 visa application in July/August. So I put temporary stay and 3 months? That is what I have been putting on the outbound cards, and haven't had any issues. Just hope I've been doing them correctly!

Hi All,

Thank you so much for the replies! i was so worried on the flight. Wanted to go back to see if they can take out my card from the box, but scare i might just missed my flight!

I have ticked "Migrant" when i entered aus (my 1st entry after PMV granted).
I believe only after im granted the partner visa 820 then i will need to tick "aus resident temporary leaving aus".

Still, thanks all for the help! =D

I would not panic about it. Being Australian Resident can be confusing. For example; a person on a tourist visa can be classed as "Australian resident for tax purposes" in some cases. Many can say they thought they were as the ATO say they are..

I can't imagine a big deal being made about it. The ABS say that about 10% of these cards are wrong anyway.

Not sure what the ABS will do for statistics once the cards are abolished.
