Kevin James Andrews (born 9 November 1955) is an Australian politician and member of the Liberal Party of Australia. He is a member of the House of Representatives, and was Minister for Immigration and Citizenship in the Howard Government, having previously been Minister for Employment and Workplace Relations from 7 October 2003 to 30 January 2007, during which time he implemented the unpopular WorkChoices labour market reforms. He is now a member of the opposition backbench.

During his tenure as Immigration Minister, Andrews' handling of the Haneef affair has been criticised, as have his comments on the need to cut the intake of refugees from Africa.
