Asylum seekers

If you're an asylum seeker, you may be eligible for a PTV Asylum Seeker ID and a Concession myki. This gives you a 50 per cent discount on travel.


To apply for a PTV Asylum Seeker ID you must:

  • be aged 17 or older
  • hold or be applying for a bridging visa under the Migration Act 1958 (Commonwealth)
  • be receiving case management from a PTV-approved asylum seeker assistance provider
  • not have any other public transport concession card.

To check if your organisation is an approved asylum seeker assistance provider, call 1800 800 007.

Send your completed application form to Public Transport Victoria at PO Box 4724, Melbourne 3001, or you can hand the form in at a PTV Hub.

Concession passengers with an Android phone can use Mobile myki, and select General concession as the fare type.


Your PTV Asylum Seeker ID is valid from the date of issue until 30 June 2020. Once your concession card has expired, you'll need to apply for a new PTV Asylum Seeker ID.

If your visa status changes, return your PTV Asylum Seeker ID to the PTV Hub at 750 Collins Street, Docklands, and ask about alternative concession cards.
