Request a VEVO Check
The Department of Home Affairs has a Visa Entitlement Verification Online system (VEVO). This allows visa holders and other organisations to check visa statuses and conditions.
VEVO can only provide information about people who have their details available in the Department’s systems. A person may not have a searchable record if they arrived to Australia before 1990 and have not travelled since.
How to apply for a VEVO check
VEVO checks are more complicated for New Zealand citizens to apply for because of the unique nature of our visa status.
This is a free service that we provide to New Zealand citizens and their immediate family members. We can access the VEVO portal to check on your behalf or you can contact the Department of Home Affairs for assistance.
