Hello and thank you everyone for the replies. I applied for immigration in August 2011 and so receiving a short deadline to travel startled me.

I have a question regarding transit and visit to other countries. The Canadian immigrants have Permanent Residence Card which allows them to enter/transit/tour many countries after paying fee at the airport without having the need to acquire prior visa. How do Australian immigrant benefit from this facility?

Also how important is it to have visa label stamped on passport now that Australian visa is label free?

Hello and thank you for your replies. I had applied for 176 in Aug. 2011 so its been quite some time that I had been waiting for the results. The short duration to travel (all family members) startled me a little.

I have a question related to Permanent Residency. In Canada PR Cards are issued to the immigrants until they are replaced with passports when they are eligible for citizenship. Canadian immigrants can transit and stay in many countries by showing PRC at airport, paying fee, and without having to arrange for visas. So how does transit for Australian permanent resident happens? Does it have anything to do with having a visa label on your passport?

You get nothing like that for australia. Your visas for other countries will be reliant on the passport you currently hold. You still even have to fill out landing cards for australia as do citizens. Visa labels aren't strictly needed,theoretically, though other agencies often ask to see them. Your visa info is all electronic.

As Cezzy has said, the visa is electronically linked to your passport so you theoretically don't need any physical evidence that you have one to enter Australia. That said, I always travel with a printed copy of my visa grant notice just in case. You can also pay to have a visa label affixed to your passport. I've never looked into it so I don't know where/how you get one, but they're supposed to be about $70 per person.
