Hello to all blogers,
Can anyone give me some advice regarding the requirement of medical insurance coverage for a 457 visa. I have been asked to organise medical insurance in order to fulfil the DIAC requirements. I have been informed that this must be obtained prior to a visa being granted, however, do I start coverage now even though we might not get there until February/March 2011 or is this something that is agreed in principle (with a fee). I am told that once coverage is obtained the insurers will provide me with a letter of confirmation? I have looked at a number of policies including one with medibank (premierplus) at a cost of $295 per month.
Any comments are most apprieciated
