Dear Team,

 

I have left Australia permanantly. Now I am thinking of claiming my Super during the period I worked in Australia. FYI, the visa types I had was working visa type 485 and student visa type 500. Should I go through the DASP application process the same as working holiday worker? And could you please adivse the the comprehensive procedure I should follow. For example, the first step is to know who is curently held the super money (ATO or super fund company)? and does the first question matter if I would like to go through the DASP Process? Is there any possible tax exemption given the COVID situation that we are experiencing?

Hello @XinhangSheng

 

You are eligible to do a DASP application if:

  • you accumulated superannuation while working in Australia on a temporary resident visa issued under the Migration Act 1958 (excluding Subclasses 405 and 410)
  • your visa has ceased to be in effect (for example, it has expired or been cancelled)
  • you have left Australia and you do not hold any other active Australian visa
  • you are not an Australian or New Zealand citizen, or a permanent resident of Australia.

 

Your super fund may transfer your super to us if:

  • it has been six months or more since you left Australia, and
  • your visa has ceased to be in effect.

 

If you're not sure where your super is, you can search for it by:

At this stage there has been no mention of any tax exemptions.
