How to claim $250 NSW Parents Voucher

NSW parents are entitled to five $50 vouchers to be used for accommodation and entertainment venues in the state until October 2022.

"The NSW Government has launched Parents NSW Vouchers to reward and thank eligible NSW households for their efforts to support learning from home in 2021," the NSW government website said.

From February 2022, one person from each eligible household can apply for 5 x $50 vouchers, worth $250 in total.


To apply for the Parents NSW vouchers, you must be:

  • a NSW resident
  • the parent, guardian or carer of a child who was aged 4.5 to 18 years in 2021 and enrolled in school which includes:
    • students from kindergarten to year 12
    • home-schooled students
    • secondary school education students at TAFE NSW.

What you need to apply

  • a Medicare card that includes the name of the school-enrolled child
  • an additional proof of identity document such as your NSW driver licence or Australian passport
  • a document showing your home address, which must be the home address of the school-enrolled child

  • the latest version of the Service NSW app on your mobile device (iOS or Android).

Where can they be used?

  • at Discover NSW businesses for entertainment and recreation activities
  • at Stay NSW businesses for accommodation bookings
  • until 9 October 2022.

Only one set of Parents NSW Vouchers for each eligible household. You do not need to re-apply for multiple children.
