How can you check your Australian visa status online?

The Australian government has made available the Visa Entitlement Verification Online system (VEVO) to allow visa holders to check their visa conditions, details and status, through a simple online enquiry.

The VEVO system also allows employers, education providers and other organisations to check the conditions a visa holder must comply.

In the current situation, more than ever before, being able to check and have your visa details available in an easy-to-use online system could save, not only time, but the troubles of having to do any process in person.

Below you will find a guide on how to use the VEVO system:

VEVO step-by-step guide

  1. Visit the VEVO website:
  2. Choose your Document Type
  3. Choose your Reference Type, enter your date of birth, document number and select the country of origin of your document
  4. Read the Terms and Conditions and click on the checkbox to accept them
  5. Click the “Submit” button

Tips to use VEVO correctly

Check all the details before you click the “Submit” button

In many of the cases where the visa holders and organisations haven’t been able to successfully check the visa conditions and details, this situation has happened because the information entered in the system hasn’t been checked and there has been a mistake.

If that’s the case, use the “Clear” button to correct the information.

Understand your visa conditions
