Travel outside Australia
There are rules for when we can pay Rent Assistance when you are outside Australia
What the rules are
If you leave Australia to live in another country, your payment will stop on departure.
If you leave Australia on a temporary basis, you may continue to get Rent Assistance if you’re both:
- getting your main payment
- paying rent in Australia.
