It’s easy to get started

VEVO (right to work) check

It is a requirement that driver-partners using the Uber Driver app in Australia have a citizenship, residency or a visa status that allows them to work. During the signup process, we will conduct a Visa Entitlement Verification Online (VEVO) check for driver-partners who are not able to provide an Australian Passport, Australian Birth Certificate or Australian Citizenship Certificate.

How it works

During the signup process, we will conduct a Visa Entitlement Verification Online (VEVO) check for driver-partners who are not able to provide an Australian Passport, Australian Birth Certificate or Australian Citizenship Certificate. If this check is successful, a copy of the results from National Crime Check will be provided via email.

In cases where we cannot verify a driver-partner’s right to work using the information they have provided, the driver-partner will be required to conduct a VEVO check independently and provide the result to us to continue through the signup process.

Alternatively, if a driver-partner has received their result and believes it to be incorrect, they can provide us with an updated result that proves their entitlement to work in Australia.

Driver-partners can obtain an updated VEVO check from the Department of Immigration’s website.
