Australian visa label requirements
If you are granted an eVisitor you do not need a visa label in your passport. Instead, you will be sent notification of the grant by email. Please keep this notification as it describes the conditions that apply to your eVisitor.
Before you start your application you should read all the information about the eVisitor (subclass 651).
Note: If you intend to visit for medical treatment or to transit through Australia, you should not apply for an eVisitor. Medical Treatment visa (subclass 602) and Transit visa (subclass 771) will have more information about how to apply for these visas.
