Australian Immigration Program

Australian Immigration ProgramAustralia is a nation of migrants, a genuinely harmonious multicultural, multilingual, and multiethnic society of hundreds of languages, ethnic and cultural groups. Australia represents a safe harbor of stable governance, the rule of Law, vital education and health systems, merit-based professional advancement, and friendly and relaxed culture for new immigrants.

For Australians, migrants are skilled workers, beloved family members, dynamic students, wide-eyed tourists, entrepreneurs, and refugees in dire need. And as much as prospective immigrants want to be Australians, the country also needs them to temper its aging population, skills & labor shortages and add to its diverse & vibrant culture.

Immigration is central to Australia's national story. From a population of about 7 million people after the Second World War, Australia has grown to a nation of more than 25 million people in 2020. The Immigration Program has played a core role in that nation-building. Effective administration of the Immigration and Citizenship Programs is central to maintaining Australia's sovereignty, economic prosperity, and community safety.

Contrary to popular myth, Australia's immigration laws are highly codified, rules-based, and complex. Frequent changes make it the most dynamic and ever-changing complex legislative system in Australian Law, which is evident from the fact that over 3,000 pages of legislation and more than 20,000 pages of policy guidelines are the driving engines of this system.

The complexity and harshness of Australia's Migration legislation have been continually increasing over the last 20 years, with the Executive and the Senate regularly adopting a wide range of changes. There are currently 88 visa classes set up under the Migration Act 1958, and contained within this are 147 different Visa subclasses.

The Department of Home Affairs of the Commonwealth of Australia remains responsible for Australian visas and immigration, Australian citizenship, Australian customs, and border protection.Please find out how we can help you to study, visit, live, work, invest and do business in Australia.

Immi Account to Apply for An Australian Visa

Immiaccount: Those who are looking for information on how to apply visa, Most of the Australian visas and Australian citizenship are applied online through a Department of Home Affairs online system called ImmiAccount. There are two types of accounts that can be created with the ImmiAccount; Individual and Organisation. 

ImmiAccount allows you access, to many of the online services such as updating the information about your application, applying for a bridging visa, updating your passport details and notifying the department about the incorrect information in your application.

Through ImmiAccount, You can withdraw your visa application before the department makes a decision. The application can not be withdrawn merely by removing the application from the Immi account login.

The applicant or their agent will need to submit a request to withdraw the application by filling Form 1446 and submitting with the applicant's application. The Australian Visa application charge or Australian citizenship application charge, paid by the application will not be refunded.

VEVO Check to Check Your Visa Status

VEVO Check: The Department of Home Affairs, Visa Entitlement Verification Online system (VEVO) allows sponsoring employers, recruiters, visa holders, education providers to check the visa conditions of the visa holders.

VEVO can only provide the information about a visa holder if their information is in the system. If your visa was granted before 1990 and you have never travelled overseas after that, then the chances are that your information might not be in the online system.

Some people may have an ImmiCard issued to them and government agencies can use that to check their immigration status in Australia.

Australian citizens have unlimited rights to work and study in Australia and this information can not be checked through the VEVO check.
