Visa Evidencing - obtaining a visa label
Do I need a visa label in my passport?
No. Australian authorities do not require a visa label in your passport to travel to, or enter or remain in Australia.
All Australia bound international commercial airlines and cruise ships are required to verify with Australian authorities that you have an Australian visa before you travel to Australia. Information on your visa status and entitlements is available on the Visa Entitlement Verification Online (VEVO) system.
When you are in Australia you can access this information at any time using the VEVO system. Employers, banks and government services can also check details about your visa entitlements once they have your consent to do so.
What is VEVO?
VEVO is a free online facility that allows visa holders and organisations to see details of current visas.
Organisations will only be able to see certain information relating to your status and entitlements. You as the visa holder are provided with more detailed information including:
• class and subclass of your visa
• grant and expiry dates
• grant number
• entries allowed
• all conditions that apply to your visa.
