• Category 2: Foreign and Norfolk Island residents exemption from Medicare levy

    If you were a foreign or Norfolk Island resident for the full year, you can claim a full exemption for the Medicare levy.

    If you were a foreign or Norfolk Island resident for only part of the year, you can claim a full exemption for that period if:

    • you did not have any dependants for that period, or
    • all your dependants were in an exemption category for that period.

    Note: From 1 July 2016, residents of Norfolk Island will be subject to the Medicare levy.
