Hello!

 

So if I am entering the country on a 417 visa and apply for a TFN when I land. Can I get this sent to a relative/friends address in Australia? As I am unsure of where I will be staying as of yet. I will probably be starting in Sydney or Melbourne and my friend lives in Queensland, will be working my way up. Or is it just best to put down the first place you are staying (even if for a few days/week etc)?

 

Thank you in advance.

Hi @shannoncollyer_


Welcome to the ATO online community

 

When you arrive you can apply for the TFN online via https://iar.ato.gov.au/IARWeb/default.aspx?pid=4&sid=1&outcome=1

Within 28 days, we will send your TFN to the Australian address you give us on your application.

Once you have received your TFN it's important that you keep it and all your personal information secure to prevent identity theft ( Please be mindful of this when deciding the address that you would like the TFN notification sent to)

 

You are able to see information via the ATO website. https://www.ato.gov.au/individuals/tax-file-number/apply-for-a-tfn/foreign-passport-holders,-permane...
