Understand more about OSHC
🍄OSHC is a requirement of your student visa.
You’ll need to maintain adequate health insurance for the entire duration of your stay while you’re on the student visa.
🍄Who’s eligible for OSHC?
👉You can get OSHC if you’re an overseas student in Australia with a student visa, or if you’re applying for a 500 student visa and currently on a bridging visa.
👉Your spouse, de facto, child or step-child may also be eligible for OSHC.
👉If you have graduated from university and are on a 482 Temporary Skill Shortage (TSS) Visa (which replaces the Temporary Work (Skilled) 457 visa) or 485 Temporary Graduate visa, you may require Overseas Visitors Health Cover (OVHC). Some 600 subclass visa holders (Visitor visa) also require OVHC.
