The importance of health insurance in Australia
If you’re coming to Australia to work, study, live or visit, the last thing you want to worry about is what happens if you get sick or have an accident. As an international visitor, you may not be eligible for cover with Medicare, Australia’s public healthcare system.
Bupa Australia offers a range of health insurance products specifically designed for people coming to Australia to work, study, live or visit. On some overseas visitor visas, it is a requirement that you have an adequate level of private health insurance prior to arrival before a visa will be granted. For those applying for the Subclass 457 Temporary work visa, all of Bupa’s overseas visitor working products meet the minimum level of cover required by the Department of Immigration and Border Protection.
Whatever your class of visa, Bupa has a level of cover to suit your needs, and you can join online before you arrive so you’re covered when you get here.
Bupa Australia is the largest privately managed health insurer in the country. It is part of the global Bupa health and care group, which looks after the health needs of more than 22 million people in over 190 countries.
