Checking your visa details
Not all visas for travel to or from Australia require a label to be placed in your passport as
evidence that a visa has been granted.
Your visa and passport information is held electronically and can be accessed at any time using
the Visa Entitlement Verification Online (VEVO) system. VEVO is a free internet service
available 24 hours a day, seven days a week. You can see all the details of your current visa,
including subclass, visa description, grant date, period of stay, grant number, entries allowed
and conditions that apply to your visa.
To access VEVO you will either need a Transaction Reference Number (TRN) or a password.
If you do not have a TRN, you will need to set up a password. You can do this by calling 131
881 and have one recorded for you (this includes if you have forgotten your password). To
access your visa details at any time online, simply go to www.immi.gov.au.

If your passport country requires you to have a visa label, you should approach a departmental
office to have your visa evidenced in your passport as soon as possible.
Please note that your nearest office with visa evidencing facilities may not be in your country
of residence, and in some countries visa evidencing is done by a Service Delivery Partner.
Details of visa evidencing arrangements and addresses and opening times for our overseas offices
can be found at www.immi.gov.au/contacts/overseas/index.htm.
If you do not have access to the internet, you can call your nearest Australian diplomatic mission
for more information on visa evidencing.
does ireland require me to have a visa label attached?
what happens if i don't have the visa label attached?
i followed the link that they have in that section and under ireland it just says that you have to go to the london embassy to apply for visas, had a bit of a look around there but couldn't find anything relating to having to have a visa label.
i was under the impression that we just jump on the plane here and when we get to australia and they scan our passports at the immigration desk that it comes up that we have a visa and they just stamp our passports there.
