Overseas Student Health Cover

All international students holding an Australian student visa are required by law to maintain valid student health cover as a condition of their student visa. Student are required to pay for OSHC before arriving in Australia. If your OSHC has expired or is going to expire you need to apply for a health insurance. You can speak to reception located at level 4, 220 Albert Road South Melbourne 3205.

The Commonwealth Department of Home Affairs (DHA) has implemented mandatory Visa Length Cover (VLC) as a requirement for all student visa applications from 01 July 2010. This means that if you apply for a student visa on or after 01 July 2010, you must show DHA that you have OSHC for the entire proposed duration of your student visa.
