Australia: Online Visa Verification System Now Available

Australia’s Department of Immigration and Citizenship (DIAC) has replaced the visa labeling system with an online verification system, which is accessible by visa holders as well as by employers and other organizations. The Visa Entitlement Verification Online (VEVO) service allows Australian visa holders to check, free of charge, the status of their visas online. Due to the new system, DIAC will no longer issue paper labels for passports for Australian visa holders, and additional information regarding each visa (such as visa conditions) can be provided online and in a secure environment.
