Yes it does. The stickers are not and never were anything to do with activating the visa.


Personally, I would still get the visa labels, the electronic system is far from infallible and having stickers helped us out a few times over the course of four years.

Visa stickers are not mandatory, will cost you a fortune 80 bucks+ per person though we've also the stickers attached in our passports but in early 2012 it was still available as a fee-free service from 'DIAC'
