Information about going overseas if you are on centrelink benefits

Centrelink Payments

Students going on an overseas experience that currently receive Centrelink payments, may be eligible for payments overseas. Before going overseas, students are responsible for contacting Centrelink and providing a copy of the official Confirmation of Approved International Activity letter.

For students undertaking a semester exchange, students must be enrolled full time in the special exchange codes.

Tip: Provide Centrelink with a nominated person in Australia who can talk to Centrelink while you are overseas.
