If you are a foreign resident for tax purposes, you can apply for a tax file number (TFN) by downloading and completing the form Tax file number - application or enquiry for individuals living outside Australia (NAT 2628, PDF, 327KB).

The tests we use to determine your residency status for tax purposes are not the same as those used by other Australian agencies for other purposes, such as immigration.
