We are pleased to introduce the Qantas Migrant Connections program to you. This program is especially designed for Hong Kong residents who are planning to migrate to Australia to help them make the move more easily and economically.
Once your migrant visa for Australia is approved, purchase your ticket travelling from Hong Kong to Australia on Qantas operated flights and fax us the completed application form. The Qantas Migrant Connections card is free of charge and valid for two years.
Show the Qantas Migrant Connections card at Hong Kong International airport when you check-in for your departure and you will enjoy the benefits immediately. Being a family card, it also covers your spouse and children travelling with you, excluding infants.
Qantas has made the following changes for the benefits. Details are shown below.
