What are the important things I need to remember about my visa?

  • ​You need to be granted and hold an Australian visa to travel to, ​enter and/or remain in Australia, unless you are an Australian citizen.
  • Keep a copy of your visa grant notification letter. This letter contains your visa grant number and other important information about your visa.
  • You can provide evidence of your visa ​by showing your passport that is linked to your electronic visa record.
  • You can use Visa Entitlement Verification Online (VEVO) and the myVEVO mobile app for free to check your visa details and conditions.
  • If you are issued with a new passport since your visa was granted, you must notify us of your new passport details so we can link it to your electronic visa record. Failure to do so may cause delays during your travel and issues when checking your visa details online.​
  • Employers, schools, banks and other organisations may be able to check your visa conditions online with your consent using VEVO. We may also share your visa information with some Australian Government agencies.​
