This page provides information about how to obtain evidence of your status in Australia.
Australian visa holders are encouraged to use the information on their foreign passport /ImmiCard to access the Visa Entitlement Verification Online (VEVO) system or the myVEVO app. VEVO is a free web service which allows visa holders and Australian organisations access to visa status information anywhere, any time.
I arrived in Australia before the mid-1980s and have never travelled out of Australia
To access VEVO you need both an electronic immigration record and a passport or ImmiCard. If you are a permanent resident who arrived in Australia prior to the mid-1980s and have not travelled from Australia since first arrival, you are unlikely to have an electronic record.
If you do not have, or cannot use or obtain, a passport you might be considered eligible for an ImmiCard to assist you to access VEVO. To apply for an ImmiCard and/or create an electronic record, please refer to the
Evidence of Immigration Status ImmiCard page. Alternatively you can consider applying for
