How much you can get

There are payment limits for the MH17 Family Support Package.

If you’re eligible, you can get:

  • a one-off payment of up to $2,000 towards the cost of airfares, insurance and transport to attend the proceedings
  • a one-off living allowance of up to $1,500 towards cost of accommodation
  • a one-off payment of up to $1,000 for periods of quarantine required upon arrival to the Netherlands or returning home.

The living allowance payment is up to $210 per night, capped at $1,500 per family member.

If more than 4 family members apply, we’ll decide who gets the payment on a case-by-case basis.

In assessing who gets the payment, we’ll consider claims in the following order:

  1. Partners
  2. Children
  3. Parents
  4. Siblings
  5. Step-parents
  6. Step-siblings
  7. Other family relationship.
