Hello Forum members,
I am here to seek some information regarding new born in Australia.
My Husband and I came to Australia on 457 visa and expecting our first child.
I would like to know all the benefits that my baby will get after birth. :)


Thanks,
Khushboo

For 457 visa holders, it seems none:(

Or maybe you can contact centrelink directly after baby's birth.

Not 100% sure but I think the baby just gets 457 visa.

I believe 457 visa is a temporary visa and one of the visa condition is:

Condition 8501-This condition is relevant for all primary and secondary visa holders. You must maintain adequate arrangements for health insurance while you are in Australia.

So I don't think you are covered by Medicare and entitled to any benefits. However, do check DHS website if there is any recent change.
