Health Insurance for visa process

English Rose

Recommended Posts

Hi English Rose, we contacted Bupa and they sent us a letter via email to confirm that we would start our medical insurance once we had landed in Perth. We then forwarded the confirmation letter to the migration agent and this satisfied the 457 visa process.


Thankyou. How long did your visa take once you sent this over? They seem to have only asked for this at the moment. x

We arranged health insurance with bupa for the whole family. As Vikki and Phil did, we sent the letter from BUPA to the visa people and they were happy. They provided letter whilst we were in the UK, but did not start paying until we were in Oz. If you fire off an email to whichever insurer you want to use they will sort you out.

Once they had this and a military service discharge certificate for myself, the visa arrived 2 days later. I had a 'brown trouser moment' as we were not ready for it either!
