This “Track your Application” facility can only be used if you have already submitted an application for a Visa at the Australian Visa Application Centre and have received an acknowledgement with a tracking number.
This service may only provide information on the current location of processing of your application and not on the exact stage of the application process.
You can track your application by entering the Reference Number (VLN Number) on the receipt received from the Visa Application Centre and your Date of Birth by using the online tracking system.
The tracking functionality will only work for 20 working days after lodgement. At peak times application processing may exceed Home Affairs published standard processing times.
For details of Home Affairs standard processing times please refer:
