Why do overseas workers need health insurance?
Whether you’re looking to gain work experience after finishing your studies, moving to Australia for your dream job, or here for a quick visit for a specialised purpose, you may need to arrange health insurance as part of your visa application.
While having private health insurance is a mandatory condition of many visas, it can also help pay for hospital, medical, ambulance and general health services, like dental and optical, that you may need during your time away. As well as giving you greater flexibility over when and where you can receive medical treatment.
