Your visa grant number would have been included in any correspondence you would have received from the department regarding the approval and grant of a visa. This may be the visa you were issued with when you first entered Australia as a temporary or permanent resident (migrant), or it may be any subsequent visas including a Resident Return visa. The visa may still be valid, or it may be expired.
If you cannot locate your approval letter, the visa grant number can also be obtained by contacting the department on 131 881 from within Australia or an Australian Visa Office overseas.
