VAST Self Service Line

VAST has available a Phone Self Service Line to give VAST decoder owners access to certain decoder services directly by a phone call to an automated system.

Some services will be restricted to validated Caller IDs to prevent abuse by 3rd parties. This will involve monitoring incoming call activity to determine the Caller ID. If your contact information has changed please provide your updated contact details by emailing VAST or using the online enquiry form.

This Self Service Line is available during normal business hours and after hours.

  • Decoder Rehit
  • Application / Decoder Status
  • Travellers State Change - Only actioned if the owner's Caller ID matches the VAST record
  • Travellers Temporary Certificate Renewal - Only actioned if the owner's Caller ID matches the VAST record
