If you have worked and earned super while visiting Australia on a temporary visa, you can apply to have this super paid to you as a departing Australia superannuation payment (DASP) after you leave.

Generally, you can claim a DASP if the following apply:

  • 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
  • you are not an Australian or New Zealand citizen, or a permanent resident of Australia.

Your DASP will generally be paid within 28 days of receipt of your completed application. It may take longer if you submit an incomplete application or you are required to submit additional supporting documents.

Our fee for claiming super refund (DASP) is only $90 (incl. GST).
