Can I buy travel insurance if I have a visa?

For temporary residents of Australia, cover is available, however, only if: 

  • You are a non-permanent resident who holds a valid Medicare card or are covered by an Australian Private Health Insurance policy that satisfies the government health insurance requirements for your visa type; and 
  • You have a home in Australia to which you intend to return; and 
  • Your trip starts and ends in Australia; and 
  • You hold a return ticket to Australia; and 
  • You are aged 89 years and under. 

Note:

  • In the event of a medical repatriation from overseas, we will return you to Australia. 
  • Medical expenses incurred once you have returned to Australia are not covered on this policy. 
  • It is therefore important that you ensure you have access to long term medical care in Australia.
  • If you are not an Australian resident or do not satisfy the above conditions, you cannot buy a Travel Insurance policy. If you do, it will be INVALID. Please contact our affiliate Aussie Travel Cover* on 02 9998 7854 and they may be able to offer you a non-Australian resident travel insurance policy.

Cover is subject to the policy terms, conditions, limits and exclusions in the Product Disclosure Statement (PDS).

*Fast Cover Pty Ltd receives a commission from Aussie Travel Cover for each referred policy.
