Health Insurance (OSHC)
One of the important criteria for granting student visa and migration facilities to overseas students in Australia is an overseas student health insurance cover. Until you have valid health insurance, no Australian institute or immigration department would grant you a student visa.
The Australian department of Home Affairs has made it mandatory for students to possess an OSHC with a validity that covers the duration they are going to stay in Australia. Not only students but also their spouses, family and children under 18 years of age are liable to obtain an OSHC to get a visa in Australia.

Importance of Getting an OVHC from the best overseas visitors health cover services in Adelaide
We at Pathway Education understand and encourage our clients to get suitable health insurance before they travel to Australia. One of the primary requisites in your visa processing and migration facilities, OVHC is important in many other ways for visitors and workers in Australia.
➤ Holding a valid OVHC is a mandatory condition for everyone visiting Australia
The department of Home Affairs in the Australian Government has made it mandatory for every person holding an overseas working or studying visa to get sufficient OVHC for the time they stay in Australia or until their visa expires.
➤ Australian hospital treatments and medical care are expensive
Visitors traveling to Australia cannot access a publicly funded medical system that is available for residents and citizens. As a result, they have to avail of the private hospitals where medical aid is extremely high. On average a patient might have to spend almost AUD $1000 per day for normal medical assistance. The right plan of OVHC helps to cover such high expenses yet meets the regular medical care facility.
➤ A prime necessity to cover visa requirement
Since medical availability is limited to residents and citizens, adequate OVHC is a mandatory requisite for all types of visa processing in Australia to cover medical checkups and treatments at affordable prices.
