      Specific question on registering with Medicare guys, especially those who have done so recently -

      did you just show your visas, or did you need rental agreements as well? And/Or anything else?

      That will be a HUGE issue for us, as we are only staying at a YHA for two nights, and then will be travelling around in our camper, so won't have a perm. place (we were either going to use the YHA or a PO address for various bits and pieces, as we've found you can use those for things like the car registration (we are buying it in WA, under WA rego) and thought we could maybe use the YHA address for registering with Medicare and our TFN).

      Cheers if anyone can answer :)

      G'day, we did our TFN's about 6 weeks ago and they won't take PO box numbers ( there was someone next to me who was trying it) but Medicare is ok with visa and passport, don't forget ambulance cover as well.
