Hello! Just wondering if anyone has any information about what Centerlink means by 'newly arrived residents'?
I'm trying to see if we can qualify for a low income healthcare card and it says on residency requirements that 'newly arrived generally have a 104 week waiting period'.
I'm an Australian citizen and my husband is a permanent resident. I've been living away from Oz for the past 9 years. Am I considered 'newly arrived'?
I thought I would be more like a returning resident... I'm hoping someone can shed some light, as I can't see anything on the centre link site that defines it.
