Apply for a Companion Card

A Companion Card is for people with significant and permanent disability. When a cardholder buys a ticket at participating venues and activities in South Australia, their companion or carer will be given free entry.

Who can apply

You can apply for a Companion Card if:

  • you live in South Australia or you reside here under a valid visa
  • you have a lifelong severe or profound disability
  • due to your disability you are unable to participate at most venues and activities without significant  attendant assistance care with mobility, communication, self-care and planning.

Attendant care includes significant assistance with activities where the use of aids, equipment or alternative strategies do not enable you to carry out these activities independently.

It does not include the companion providing only social company or reassurance at events.
