I'm travelling overseas. What do I do?

A:

There are several ways you can participate if you’re overseas.

If you’re temporarily overseas, you might be able to complete your plebiscite form before you leave or after you return. Plebiscite forms need to be received at the ABS by the 7 November deadline. Make sure you allow enough time for it to be delivered after you post it- the ABS recommends posting by 27 October.

If you’re overseas for the entire period, you have the option to ask a trusted person to receive your form on your behalf, open it, complete it based on your instructions and return it to the ABS. More information about this option can be found here.

If neither of the above options are possible, you can request a Secure Access Code from the ABS through the Information Line (1800 572 113 or +61 2 6252 5262 from overseas, 7 days a week, 8am - 8pm) or the ABS website until 20 October 2017. Then you will be able to complete the plebiscite online, via the automated telephony service or via a call centre.
