Departing Australia Superannuation Payment (DASP)

If you’ve worked in Australia on a temporary visa, you can take the money in your super with you when you leave. This is called the Departing Australia Superannuation Payment (DASP).

How to claim the DASP

Apply to the ATO within six months of leaving Australia and when your visa has expired or is cancelled. 

Apply to the ATO  
You can use your tax file number in the application to search for your super or provide your Hostplus member number and the Hostplus ABN (68 657 495 890). 

Once the ATO approves your application, they’ll instruct us to make your payment. This usually happens within 28 days of the ATO receiving your application. 

If your account balance is more than $5,000

As well as completing the ATO application, you’ll need to send us: 


You can claim the DASP if: 

  • you’ve left Australia permanently 
  • your visa is expired or cancelled 
  • you’re not a permanent resident or citizen of Australia or New Zealand. 

If you’re moving to New Zealand, you can’t claim the DASP but you may be able to transfer your super to a Kiwi Saver account.

Tax and the DASP 

You’ll pay tax on the taxable component of your super.  

Working holiday makers 

  • 35% for taxed component 
  • 45% for untaxed component

Non-working holiday makers 

  • 65% for both taxed and untaxed components 

If you don’t claim your super 

If you don’t claim your money within six months of departing Australia, we’ll transfer it to the ATO. You can still claim it back at any time as unclaimed super. Visit the ATO for more information on unclaimed super
