COVID-19 restrictions

Due to COVID-19 restrictions, service centres may be closed or open at different times. Some service centres are also currently not booking appointments. Check if this affects your local service centre.

In line with health advice we limit the number of staff and customers inside our service centres. If you can do your business using our self service options, we may ask you to do this from somewhere else. This will let us help customers with more complex enquiries.

In a lockdown area only visit us if it’s essential. You can do most of your Centrelink, Medicare or Child Support business with us online through myGov.

If you can’t do your business online, you can call us.

Check local COVID-19 restrictions about wearing a face mask and check in requirements before you enter our service centres. Your state or territory government website will have the latest information:

Service Centres currently not booking appointments
