VEVO: Visa Entitlement Verification Online System
VEVO or Visa Entitlement Verification Online is an online system and database used to store information about Australian visa holders. It allows visa holders, employers, registered migration agents and education providers to check entitlements and conditions of visas. Once you download the app you can do your own VEVO check.
VEVO offers information on current and in-effect visas such as:
- Which visa;
- The expiry date;
- The must not arrive after date;
- The period of stay (how long you can stay);
- Conditions (what you can and can’t do).
Aside from being able to check the conditions of your visa you can also use VEVO to send proof of your visa conditions to others, for example, employers, landlords or the government of a country you would like to visit.
Registering in VEVO as a visa comes with numerous benefits such as:
- You do not need a visa label in your passport;
- You can check your visa details anytime you have internet access;
- You can check the progress of a visa or citizenship application online; and
- A potential employer can check your ability to work, reducing the time of the hiring process.
You can register for VEVO at the Australian Department of Home Affairs website.
The login page for visa holders can be found here.
Australian Organizations can not access the information of a visa holder on the Visa Entitlement Verification Online system without the permission of the visa holder. They must also be registered in VEVO to use it.
VEVO can be useful to organisations in the process of enrolling a student in a program, hiring a new employee or giving someone a licence.
Organisations need an Australian Business Number (ABN) to be able to register in VEVO.
Registered organisations can check someone’s visa details.
Register for an ImmiAccount and then use VEVO to see the visa conditions of visa holders who have given you permission.
Organisations can register for an ImmiAccount at this link.
Registered Migration Agents
Australian migration agents also can gain access to use VEVO. If they wish to do so they must be registered with Migration Agents Registration Authority (MARA). They would register for an Immiaccount as an organisation to access VEVO.
