You can get a tax file number by filling out a form online with the ATO, you can do this straight away in Australia (you don't need to be PR). All banks will allow you to open an account with 100 points of ID - passport and Medicare card/credit card/foreign licence should do it. You need an address but you don't need proof of your address.

Mrs Woody
Medicare is not possible under PMV300, you can apply after you submit visa 820. Yes it is easy to get a tax file number on pmv 300 on line use this link as it is better than the standard ATO link www.ira.ato.gov.au and then look for TFN for Non-residents. Once given a tax file number it will be the same even after you marry/divorce etc.
If you open a bank account within the first 6 weeks of arriving in Australia, all you need is your passport (we did this at the commonwealth bank) or after 6 weeks you will need the full 100 points of identification (not so easy for someone new to the country)

PMV 300 to 820

I'm from Seattle and my fiance lives in Melbourne. We're 3 months into the PMV 300 application, which has not been approved as of yet. I have a few random questions about the transition to a 820 Visa.
1. Once I move to Australia on the PMV 300, do I receive Medicare on the PMV 300 or will that be after the 820? I was under the impression that I could apply for Medicare right after I enter Australia.
2. The PMV 300 is for 9 months. Does the 820 have to be granted within that 9 months? If not, how long can I stay on the 300? The 820 can take 6-8 months.

Thanks for your help!

1. You aren't eligible for Medicare on a PMV 300 unless you are from a country that has reciprocal health coverage (e.g. UK, Ireland, Belgium, etc. - USA does not have reciprocal health coverage). But once you apply for the 820 visa you can take a copy of the acknowledgement letter to Medicare and apply.

2. You must apply for the 820 before the PMV expires. Once you apply, you will be granted a Bridging Visa A which will take effect when the 300 expires and will allow you to remain in Australia while the 820 is being processed. The BVA also gives you full working rights.

Regarding #2, actually, you can still lodge your 820 application after your 300 expired. But the application fee going to be higher.

Generally, from 300 to 820 is a relatively easier process and the processing time is shorter compare to you only apply for 820.

Yes - you HAVE to lodge your 820 before your PMV expires, otherwise you'd find yourself unlawfully in the country. Generally, though, PMV-to-820 applications take anywhere from a few days (sometimes even same day!) to just a few weeks, so you probably won't even need to be on a bridging visa very long at all, even if you wait until the last minute to apply (but why would you do that?)

And as said above, you're not Medicare-eligible until you apply for the 820.
