Expiry of PTV Asylum Seeker ID

Your PTV Asylum Seeker ID is valid from the date of issue until 30 June 2019. Once your concession card has expired, you will need to apply for a new PTV Asylum Seeker ID.

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.
