Hi,

Me and my Husband has just been granted 176- Sponsored Skill migrant Visa for Melbourne. I am planning to travel to Melbourne this July for studying. While i am studying for 1 year, my husband will stay back in Qatar and sponsor my studies. What i wanted to know is that is it necessary to get Tax File Number for my husband now itself or can we apply for his TFN once he joins me in Melbourne, say after 1 year? As i have read that once he has TFN, he will have to pay income tax on his foreign income. He wil be travelling with me to Melbourne for a week.

Thanks,

Umera

Your husband can apply for his TFN when he joins you permanently. If he's not going to be here earning a wage he won't need his TFN yet.
