You can enrol in Medicare if you’re a New Zealand citizen. You’ll need to give us both:
- a New Zealand passport for each person you want to enrol
- 2 documents per family that prove you live in Australia dated within the last 6 months.
Proving you live in Australia
You can prove you live in Australia by giving us either:
- 2 documents from Australia
- 1 document from Australia and 1 from where you last lived.
|Documents from Australia||Documents from the other country|
|Proof of rental or lease agreement and gas or electricity account in the same name||Proof you sold your property|
|Proof of purchase of property and gas or electricity account in the same name||Proof you ended your lease|
|Proof of job||Proof you ended your job|
|Proof your child is enrolled in school, childcare or university||Proof you moved household goods or furniture|
|A statement showing you opened your bank account||A statement showing you closed your bank account|
|Proof of health, property or contents insurance||Proof you cancelled health, property or contents insurance|
You don’t need to get your documents certified.
Complete a Medicare enrolment form and mail or email it with your documents to Medicare Enrolment Services.
If you don’t have these documents, tell us. We’ll talk to you about other options.
