Default 489 visa grant, health insurance?

Hi guys,

As you know regional provisional 489 visa holders, they dont have access to Australian healthcare as permanent visa holder.

After 489 visa granted, do I have to buy personal health insurance before coming to Australia or after arrival????

Please help me

Hello Seniors

I need help while lodging the visa application.

I got Invitaion with 65 points for 489 rs

On the employment page there is a question
"has the applicant ever been employed in an occupation closely related to the nominated occupation " ?

If I choose yes, there is a dropdown, from which gives options to choose from 3, 5 or more years..

I am not claiming any points for employment experience as I am having 2.7 years of experience..

I have positive skill assessment on 10 feb 2013..

So how shall I fill these fields for employment.. shall I choose 'yes' or 'no' for the above question..

Hi, I was wondering about the same thing when I was filling the application. The question is not very precise, but they are asking about relevant experience that you claim points for. So just select "no" (that's what I did).
Good luck!

Hi RNAussie,

Can you please revert on your own query. I will be landing in Adelaide soon, thus need clarity on this.

Kindly revert!

Well if having personal health insurance is not a condition of the visa then it amounts to a personal decision on your part.

Hi Jayptl,

could you please help us with the Medical Insurance details you bought, as I along with my wife would be travelling to Adelaide, South Australia next month and as being on 489 Visa need to buy Medical Insurance.

How much approximately will it cost for 2 people and what all is covered in default plan.
