• Departing Australia superannuation payment

    Temporary residents who accumulated super while working in Australia on eligible temporary resident visas can claim their super from their fund if:

    • they've departed Australia
    • their visa has ceased to be in effect
    • they aren't an Australian or New Zealand citizen or permanent resident.

    This payment is called a departing Australia superannuation payment (DASP).

    From 1 July 2017, a new tax rate of 65% applies to DASP for working holiday makers if the payment includes superannuation contributions made while a person held either:

    • subclass 417 (Working Holiday) visa
    • subclass 462 (Work and Holiday) visa
    • an associated bridging visa.
