    There should be a link in the visa grant letter, just had a look at mine,

     

    Evidence of your visa

    It is recommended that all visa holders obtain evidence of their visa in their current passport.

    They can have evidence of their visa placed into their passport at any of the departments offshore

    offices with visa evidencing facilities. Details of addresses and opening times for these overseas

    offices can be found at - http://www.immi.gov.au/contacts/overseas/index.htm

    Please note that a copy of this letter is sufficient for visa evidencing purposes.

    IMPORTANT - Visa holders should allow at least five working days after presenting their

    passport to a departmental office for the evidencing process to be completed.

    It is definately Australia House, you have to send it in a silver prepaid pouch and put another stamped address silver pouch inside with your passports and visa grant letter. Ours took 3 days, really fast service.

    Hope this helps and well done on getting visa, now the nerves and excitement really start!!!

    sue dont worry about it - we sent our passports on a fri and they came back on the following wed and i know of 2 other people who were exactly the same - i was panicking as i had booked my flights etc but i think they just say 2 weeks to cover any delays/problems - it should be alot quicker

     

    all the best

    A friend of mine got her visa a few weeks ago and there was nothing in her grant letter to tell her how to get the actual visa either - the DIMIA are slacking!!! She got her visa back in about 5 days! Congratulations on the grant!!
