International Student Travel Pass
The International Student Travel Pass (ISTPass) gives you 50% off the price of a 90-, 180- or 365-day myki pass.
You can choose a discounted statewide, Zone 2-only or regional zone myki pass that gives you unlimited travel on buses, trams, and metropolitan and V/Line trains – saving you hundreds of dollars.
For more information on zones, visit the Public Transport Victoria (PTV) website.
To be eligible, you must be enrolled in a full-time undergraduate course at Deakin. New Zealand students are eligible, but domestic students, international exchange students, students with refugee status, Australia Award scholarship-holders and postgraduate students are not eligible for this pass.
How to apply
- Complete our online form – you’ll need your student ID and Deakin email.
- Check your Deakin email for your International Student Travel Pass code (this may take up to three business days to arrive).
- Visit the International Student Travel Pass website to register your details and buy your pass. You’ll need to provide a passport-style photo.
If you’ve used the pass before (it was previously called ‘iUSEpass’), you’ll still need to apply for a new code from Deakin. Then, just log into your existing account, select ‘Renew pass’ and enter your new code.
Need a refund?
If you’re returning home or no longer using public transport, you can submit a refund request via our online enquiry form. You must include the following:
- clear jpeg photo of your International Student Travel Pass card
- mobile phone number
- student ID number
- current email address.
We’ll then submit a refund request to PTV Victoria on your behalf. Please allow up to 30 days for the refund to be processed.
