AUSTRALIA’S VISA LABEL POLICY
The Australian Government does not require holders of Australian visas to have a visa label in their passport.
We electronically record all visas issued to non-citizens providing them permission to travel, enter and/or remain in Australia. This means that evidence of a visa grant in the form of a visa label is no longer routinely issued to visa holders. Instead, electronic visas are linked to a visa holder’s current passport which enables us to provide accurate, secure and real-time information about a visa holder’s visa details. It is also more secure than issuing a visa label as it reduces the risk of fraud.Having this electronic connection also enables online checking of visa details by visa holders, airlines, registered Australian organisations and Australian government agencies.

Translation offices and related companies are entitled to charge you a fee to assist with completing your application form. Please consider if you think the sum of money you are being requested to pay to complete your application form and any other services is reasonable.
Please be wary of companies that make unrealistic claims – “Your application cannot be refused for any reason”, “If we assist with your forms, you have a higher chance of success”, “If you do not pay me this additional money, you will be refused from entering Australia forever”.
