”Home Affairs Minister Clare O’Neil will from Wednesday also end a requirement for people coming into the country – Australian citizen or not – to complete a digital passenger declaration, saying the government had listened to feedback about the app’s problems.

Yes, I worked for the Australian Customs Service for 24 of my 37 years there. Once politicians of both sides saw vote gaining opportunities in a 'force'Greatest news for the time being, but bet you it will come back with enhancements/improvement/what they call these 2.
Maybe under the new system, what ever they (ALP) might call it/change the name of the whole agency to make it less military like, they might do without having to use the phone to read the passport chip, and not needing a selfie, might be a good thing to have.
Will have to wait and see.
Who knows what name the ALP will come up for the agency, maybe change back to a "service" rather than a force.
