    Visa information for DASP applications

    From Monday 26 June 2017 departing Australia superannuation payment (DASP) applicants can enter their visa information in the DASP online application system. This means you will receive visa information in DASP applications, where applicable.

    For Working Holiday Makers (WHM) applicants, you must only apply the new DASP WHM tax rate for from 1 July 2017 and not before.

    If you need visa information for DASP online applications received before 26 June (and not processed before 1 July), you should participate in our one-off process to provide you with visa information sourced from the Department of Immigration and Border Protection (DIBP). We will use our data transfer facility (DTF) to provide you with this information so you can apply the correct tax rate.

    You should process applications by 30 June wherever possible to avoid your members having to pay the higher tax rate from 1 July 2017.

    What you need to do

    • Download the visa information template.
    • Complete one template for each ABN.
    • Ensure all fields are completed as we need these details to obtain visa information from DIBP. Incomplete templates will be returned to you.
    • Upload completed templates to the DTF by close of business 14 July 2017.
    • Once you have sent the template, email SuperCRT@ato.gov.au with 'DASP WHM transition' in the subject field.
    • When your authorised user/s receives a notification email from us you will need to download the file from DTF for the visa information.

    What we will do

    • We will provide you with visa information for the applicants you supplied in the template by 28 July 2017.
    • We will identify applicants who have only held a WHM visa or have held both WHM and other visas. Applicants who have never held a WHM visa will not appear in the returned file.
    • We will notify your authorised user/s via email when the file is ready to download from the DTF.

    This process is only for DASP applications received via the DASP online system and not processed before 1 July 2017.

    For paper applications, you can contact the applicant directly and ask them to provide visa information.
