The National Automated Fingerprint Identification System (NAFIS) is an Australian fingerprint and palm print database and matching system[1] to assist law enforcement agencies across Australia and the Department of Immigration and Border Protection to establish the identity of persons and to help solve crimes[2] and for other purposes.

NAFIS was established in 1986, and an upgraded system commenced operations in April 2001 and provides technological improvements in fingerprint matching.
