Dear All

I would like to thank this forum and its members, I got a PR on 27-08-2013. I am planning to visit Australia with my family during the month of January for two weeks, my plan is to visit Australia and complete the formalities and come back to my current place for one more year.

I want to know what are the things to be done like TFN, Medicare etc.

Cheers

None of them. You can not register or use medicare or centrelink until you have a residential address and a living in the country. TFN also needs a residential address. Just enjoy your holiday.

why would you bother yourself with TFN, Medicare, etc when you have no intention to stay here? Anyway - as shel rightly pointed out, you can't do any of these unless you have residential address here.

What will not affect your visa status? not opening Medicare, TFN etc? No they will not affect anything related to your visa.

Why w it not? There isno requirement to register for centerlink or medicare if you do not wish to use them and a tfn is fir tax filing purposes when you are an Australian resident. Having PR does not make you resident unless you actually live there.
