Who are we?
The Pacific Immigration Directors' Conference (PIDC) was established in 1996, and is a forum for official immigration agencies of the Pacific Region.
The PIDC enables heads of immigration agencies to discuss issues of mutual interest and to foster multilateral co-operation and mutual assistance aimed at strengthening members' territorial borders and the integrity of their entry systems.
PIDC membership is open to 23 countries and territories across the Pacific, including:
American Samoa, Australia, the Commonwealth of Northern Mariana Islands, the Cook Islands, the Federated States of Micronesia, Fiji, French Polynesia, Guam, Kiribati, Marshall Islands, Nauru, New Zealand, New Caledonia, Niue, Norfolk Island, Palau, Papua New Guinea, Samoa, Solomon Islands, Tonga, Tuvalu, Vanuatu and Wallis and Futuna.
PIDC is the pre-eminent organisation in the region facilitating capacity and capability development, and effective regional cooperation in managing and securing the Pacific gateways, contributing to regional security, economic growth, sustainable development and good governance
