Hi @shankar16

 

Welcome to our Community!

 

If you visited Australia on a temporary visa, and you earned superannuation while working here, you may be eligible to claim your super back when you leave the country.

 

You’ll need to make sure your visa has ceased (for example, your visa is cancelled or has otherwise expired) you’ll also need to have left Australia before you can lodge your claim. If you have ATO-held super, use Application for payment of ATO-held superannuation money – send this form to the address listed on the form.

 

You can find helpful information about claiming a DASP in our Knowledge base articles and frequently asked questions on our Community. 

 

Any questions you have regarding your visa application will need to be directed to the Department of Home Affairs. If calling from overseas phone +61 2 6196 0196, Monday to Friday between 9 am to 5 pm (AEST).

 

Thanks, JodieH.

The ATO does not have anything to do with visas including pending visas.

 

You will have to contact the Department of Home Office Affairs, pls refer following link:
