You can print a copy of it via your immi account or check your email for the grant letter. I suppose if you applied by paper they would mail it to you? Either way it's automatically attached to the passport.

Yeh they did email us the grand letter
so will just print the letter and use in the airport just in case we get questioned!!!
So if they scan the passport will it show a visa is granted? or it will be physically stamped on the passport ( flying from LA, CA airport to Melb. Aus.
Btw thanks for the quick reply

SwedeInNYC: Nope, we sent an email on Friday after they contacted us by email the same day. The call came unannounced Monday morning.

Congrats! Wow, I think that might the quickest grant I've ever read about in this US forum. Did you submit a "decision ready" application? Also, did I understand that correctly that your visa got processed by the consulate in LA?

It is electronically linked to your passport. The DIBP specifies:

"On 1 September 2015, Australia ceased issuing visa labels to holders of Australian visas. Australian visas are issued and recorded electronically. ... Your visa is linked to your passport or ImmiCard through its unique identification number. You and other parties need this number when checking your visa online."

lodged online through the Washington D.C
our application wasn't decision ready as 2 months after lodging they requested to do Medical & police check
and some other documents then we didn't hear anything from co for nearly 2 months...

I wonder what makes them jump so many months ahead in the processing. It seemed like they were mostly looking at second half/end of 2016 in the past weeks.

Nothing new here - reached 9 months this week.
