Australia: VEVO Visa Immigration Status Checks
In Australia, individuals, employers and some organisations can check visa and immigration status details through the Visa Entitlement Verification Online (VEVO) system managed by the Department of Home Affairs.
Individuals who hold, or have applied for, an Australian visa can check their visa conditions and immigration status details directly through a visa holder enquiry.
Employers in Australia must only employ, refer and contract individuals that are legally permitted to work in Australia.
The Department of Home Affairs advises employers to check they are only employing individuals who can legally work in Australia, highlighting that a person can legally work in Australia if:
- they are an Australian citizen or permanent resident or a New Zealand citizen, or
- they hold a valid visa with permission to work
Validating the work rights of your employees
While employers can check the work rights of visa holders through the VEVO system, it cannot be used to confirm if an individual has unlimited work rights through holding Australian citizenship.
CVCheck has automated the task of validating that each member of your workforce is legally allowed to work in Australia. CVCheck’s Australian VEVO Visa Status & Work Entitlement Check provides employers with fast verification of their workforce by:
- Checking and validating their Australian citizen, or
- Conducting a VEVO visa check on non-citizens to confirm their visa status directly with the Department of Home Affairs, disclosing whether the individual has no work entitlements, unlimited work entitlements or limited work entitlements (including work conditions) in Australia
