No. It is the obligation of your sponsoring employer to advise the Department of Home Affairs that you have ceased employment. Generally, the sponsor will advise us and we will notify the Department on the company’s behalf. You are not required to notify the Department personally.
You will need to ask the Department of Home Affairs to cancel your visa voluntarily first before you can access your super funds.
Please do not take steps to do this until you and all visa holders linked to your Australian visa have left Australia permanently.
There are three ways to do this:
- We can do this for you.
- You can also create an ‘ImmiAccount’ and ask for the cancellation yourself.
- Download a Form 1194 and email it to firstname.lastname@example.org.
Once you have had your visa cancelled, you will need to apply to the ATO online to access your super here.
