VISA Conditions

When a student is issued
with a student visa, there are conditions attached to it. 
These visa
conditions are
often expressed as numbers. 
NOTE: Australian
authorities do not require students to have a visa label in their passport. VEVO  is a free online facility that allows Australian visa holders,
employers, education providers, financial institutions and government agencies
to check the visa details including conditions and entitlements of a visa
VEVO requires a registration and login. To check/verify the status of a
student visa and its conditions, go to the VEVO
It is essential that every
agent informs their students of the need to comply with their visa conditions.
If a student does not comply, their visa may be cancelled and they may need to
return home. There is also a three year ban (exclusion period) on re-entry to
Australia if a visa is cancelled for breaching visa conditions. 
The following table
explains visa conditions that are relevant to most students, there are other
visa conditions that may apply to the primary visa holder or their family
members. This information will be included in the visa grant letter and also in
