Hi, i know some of you here have been to Australia, but i was wondering how long it takes to get your TFN though,

Thanks

Filling in the paperwork takes an hour or so and then could be near the same to hand the paperwork in. You'll get a slip of paper straightaway that allows you to work, but your actual TFN will be sent to you in the mail and will take roughly 4 weeks to get to you....

If it's still the same as before, the tax office is in the Centrepoint Tower (can't miss it), downtown Sydney :)

HTH!

Hi

I filled in an application on-line and received my TFN in less than a week. I suppose it just depends on how busy they are.
