DVA's number one priority is the health and safety of the Australian Veteran Community.

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.

With the easing of isolation measures, face-to-face services and support from DVA staff has resumed in all our Veteran Access Network offices and shopfronts. ADF personnel can access services on ADF bases through Veteran Support Officers, to book an appointment please email VSO [at]

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.

Persons attending the office must follow all COVID-19 precautionary measures.

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.
