 Apply for a Travel & Accommodation Subsidy Online

SCHOOL-BASED apprentices/trainees: Your Travel and Accommodation application forms are available from your school or the Education Queensland website. You cannot lodge a claim through this site.

The Department of Employment, Small Business and Training provides travel and accommodation subsidies to eligible apprentices and trainees to assist in meeting the additional costs associated with attending your training provider.

To be eligible, you must meet the following criteria:

  • You must be attending the closest training provider campus that delivers the course of instruction for your particular training program. You can find out which training organisations deliver the apprenticeship or traineeship qualification that you are undertaking by visiting the Queensland Training Information Service (QTIS) website.

  • You must travel 50 kilometres or more one way by the most direct route from your usual place of residence to attend your closest training provider campus. Your usual place of residence may not be a home address if you usually live away from home to attend work (e.g. if you live in a mining camp for work purposes).

  • You must lodge an application within six months of the completion date of the training block or attendance period being claimed for.

You can use this site to lodge an application for all types of travel and accommodation subsidy including air travel and advance claims.

If you have a completed paper-based claim form and it is signed by your training organisation, you can attach it to your application via this site for a faster payment. If you submit your application after attending training without attaching a completed form, the department will verify your attendance details directly with your training organisation and calculate your claim entitlements. Most eligible claims will be paid within 28 days.

Please ensure you have read and understood the Travel and Accommodation Allowance: Policy Statement and Guidelines before submitting your claim form.
