Visit your local office

The health and safety of the Australian veteran community is a high priority for the Department of Veterans' Affairs.

To assist with ensuring this, members of the veteran community are encouraged to conduct their business over the phone or online through MyService wherever possible.

We will continue to uphold the recommended social distancing measures within our offices and shopfronts to ensure the health and safety of the veteran community and our staff.

Face-to-face services from DVA staff provided at Veteran Access Network offices and shopfronts operate within State and Territory public health orders. Please monitor advice in your area or contact DVA on 1800 VETERAN (1800 838 372) to clarify the opening status of your local office prior to attending.

If you're currently serving, you can book an appointment to meet with one of our Veteran Support Officers on base.

Also stay at home if you have any cold or flu symptoms, such as:

Changes to our offices

We have made the following changes to our offices to help prevent the spread of COVID-19:

Arriving at an office

We politely request that you do not bring children or visitors with you to the office. In most cases, only the person with the appointment will be allowed into the office.

When you arrive at the office for your appointment, an officer will ask you questions about your health to determine if you will be allowed into the office.

  • While you are in the office you need to follow social distancing measures and stay 1.5 metres away from other people.
  • Follow any instructions about the number of people allowed into the office or lifts at the same time.
  • Practice good hygiene, including:
    • Use of the hand sanitiser available in the office
    • If you cough or sneeze, cover your mouth and nose with your elbow or a tissue.
