The person concerned applied for a Companion Free Travel Pass on 26 August 2019. The application was assessed by the Department’s Medical Adviser on 07 September 2019. Based on the medical evidence provided, the application was disallowed on 14 September 2019.

It is open to the person concerned to provide additional (or specialist) medical evidence in support of their claim for a Companion Free Travel Pass. If further evidence is provided, the matter will be re-examined.

I hope this clarifies the matter for the Deputy.
