Overseas Visitor 416 Special Program Visa
You’ve received an invitation to participate in an approved special program by an Australian organisation.
Whether it’s taking part in a community benefit or youth exchange program, you’ll be sharing cultural and social experiences as well as knowledge with the Australian community.
Regardless of your reason for visiting, protecting your health should remain a priority while you’re in Australia. With Overseas Visitors Cover, you’ll have access to high quality health care and consultations.
Looking after you health and wellbeing makes sense plus it is a condition of your visa to maintain adequate health insurance during your stay.
It is a mandatory requirement for a subclass 416 visa that you must hold adequate health insurance cover for the entire time you are in Australia. You will need to provide proof that you have purchased adequate health insurance for the period you intend to stay in Australia. Buying health insurance that meets Australia’s visa requirements can seem daunting. But it’s easy to arrange from iSelect.
iSelect provides a range of private health covers that meet the current requirements of most major Australian visas. We can compare a range of Australian health insurance policies for you. Best of all the service is free and it can save you a great deal of time and money.
If your country has a Reciprocal Health Care Agreement (RHCA) with Australia, you may have access to Australia’s public health system.
