All employment however must be consistent with the objectives of the Special Program Visa and meet appropriate State or Federal Industrial Relations requirements.
CHECKING YOUR VISA DETAILS The Department has developed a new service called Entitlement Verification Online (EVO) which allows certain third parties to check your visa information with your consent.
Through EVO, you can give your consent to registered third parties such as: – employers and labour suppliers, to help check whether your visa allows you to work in Australia; – government agencies, to help assess your eligibility for services; – licensing authorities, to help establish your eligibility for a licence; and – educational institutions, to assess whether you can study in Australia.
The disclosure of your visa information by the Department is governed by the Privacy Act 1988. Therefore, the Department will disclose information about your visa to a third party only with your consent. You can consent to an inquiry about your visa entitlements by giving the third party your name, date of birth, passport number and passport country of issue. If you do not wish a third party to find out about your visa entitlements, do not give them this information.
The information form 993i ‘Safeguarding your personal information’, available from Immigration offices, gives details of third parties to which you can consent to your personal information being disclosed, and how you can consent.
Employers and organisation will be able to access the service on the Department’s website under ‘Online Services’ >> ‘Entitlement Verification Online’.
Please contact this office via our helpdesk if you have any questions concerning your visa. Please cite the client ID number entered at the head of this letter if you wish to correspond with the Department.
