Expiry of Victorian Public Transport Concession Card or PTV Asylum Seeker ID

Your Victorian Public Transport Concession Card is valid from the date of issue until 30 June 2017. Once your concession card has expired, you will need to apply for a new PTV Asylum Seeker ID.

Your PTV Asylum Seeker ID is valid from the date of issue until 30 June 2018.

If your visa status changes in that time, you must return the card to Public Transport Victoria. You may then be eligible to apply for a different concession card.
