If you're buying a myki card online or through our call centre you'll need to provide your postal address so we can send you the card. We'll delete these details within 30 days of sending you the card.
Your myki will take seven to 10 business days to arrive. Once you receive the card you need to top up so you're ready to travel.
You also have the option of registering your myki. This protects the balance of the card in case your myki is lost or stolen. When you buy a registered myki online or from the call centre, you can choose to print your name on it.
