Default Visa Stamping in Passport

Hi All,

I'm planning to reach Australia in the end of Feb 2012. While looking at various travel options, I just found out that some countries need Australian Visa stamped in our passport to pass through that country (even though you are just catching a connecting flight ).

I'm planning to travel to Melbourne through Malaysia or Singapore from Hyderabad / Chennai.

Can the experienced folks please share their experiences / memories regarding the travel WITHOUT VISA stamping.

I would also like to know if some one had any NOT SO MEMORABLE experiences regarding the Visa NOT STAMPED in their passport while traveling to Australia through Malaysian or Singapore Airlines.

Thanks for sharing your thoughts in advance.

Regards,
Chetendra...

I would recommend you to have visa label stamped on your passport. Its always good to have backup options with us.

Am not sure about this.. you can refer to this doc - but this also does not confirm.

http://www.india.embassy.gov.au/file...n_06082012.pdf

Hopefully, we would not have to spend 4k (70$) for this label!

Furthermore, can anyone please let us know what type of information does the VISA STICKER contain before activating the visa?
My concern is, is it better to get the visa stamped before the activation or after the activation?
Is there any difference in information?

Yesterday, I had a call with the Malaysian Airlines center in Hyderabad and he said it is not an issues. On my insistence, he even verified my VISA status after providing my passport and Last name and confirmed that I can travel on any day. He said that my VISA details are reflecting online and there will be no issue in my travel.
I intend to confirm once again with the Australian Embassy In New Delhi though I'm pretty much sure that it will not be a problem with Malaysian Airlines...

Thanks,
Chetendra...

So that means no need to have a visa label on your passport?

Hi Spin123,
First of all Congrats on receiving grant. I look at your time line and I'm amazed you got everything done in less than 1 year and that too without state sponsorship. Well done.

Regarding the Visa Stamping, I believe it all depends on the Airlines you were traveling. I read somewhere in this forum that in Dubai, you WILL be having issue and hence it is advisory to get Visa Stamped. I intend to travel through Malaysia Airlines and if they don't have any issue, then it should be fine. I also intent to make a call to Australian Embassy once before my travel.
BTW, when are you planning to travel ?
Regards,
Chetendra...

Hi Thanks for the tips.

We are traveling on 14th by Cathay Pacific and we do not have a visa stamp. Will let everyone know if we get detained or deported or if we reach successfully.
