Register as a VEVO organisation

Register for VEVO

If you are a visa holder you do not need to register to access VEVO.​ You will need to go to check my own visa details with VEVO or you can download the myVEVO app.

To register for a VEVO for Organisations account you need to create an ImmiAccount and have a valid Australian Business Number (ABN). VEVO offers different access categories; your business requirement will determine the VEVO access provided. You can register for VEVO at any time.
Note: Your Organisation Account Administrator (OAA) and / or the Department will need to approve your access request.

The client groups and categories table can help you determine what type of access your organisation might receive. Employers and labour supply companies wanting to check work entitlements attached to a prospective or current employees visa should register under the work entitlements category.

If your organisation needs to use VEVO for any other purpose, you can contact us for help with your registration.
