Support and assistance for Afghan evacuees

6 September 2021

We are helping people from Afghanistan begin their new lives in Australia.

If you are an evacuee, on arrival, expert humanitarian services providers will look after you and your immediate needs.

Like all arrivals into Australia, you will spend some time in quarantine.

We will contact you during this time. We do this to make sure you get the right payments and services from us, such as your Medicare card.

Call our Centrelink multilingual phone service to ask us in your language, about the Centrelink payments and services you may get.
