             (1)  If a person is subject to a newly arrived resident's waiting period, the period starts on the day the person first became an Australian resident.

             (3)  The newly arrived resident's waiting period ends when the person has been an Australian resident and in Australia for a period of, or periods totalling, 104 weeks.

Note:          This rule does not apply to people who were already subject to, or had already served, a newly arrived resident's waiting period before the commencement of this rule. Clause 121 of Schedule 1A to this Act continues the application of the previous rules to those people.
