First Entry Acknowledgement

Recommended Posts


my first entry date is September 2020. When the CoronaVirus was declared as Pandemic in March 2020 and the Australian Government was planning to close their borders, i immediately took an available flight to Melbourne (though my state is South Australia). Stayed there for 24 hours and then came back. Now, i am confused whether my First Entry was acknowledged or not. I checked my VEVO account and the VISA Status says "In Effect" but shouldn't it be "Activated"? Any idea guys? Is there any email address of Department of Home Affairs where i can contact to get this sorted out? There are hundreds of email addresses i can see online but i don't see any for 489 VISA holders. Any lead would be appreciated. Thanks in advance!

There is no acknowledged, it is just automatic as soon as your passport was scanned on entry.

No, it shouldn't.
