Travel Insurance for 457 Visa Holders and other Temporary Residents
Travel Insurance for work visa holders in Australia, such as 457 visa holders, can be problematic, with many travel insurance providers only covering Australian citizens and permanent residents. Insure4less, which provides travel insurance underwritten by Lloyds of London, is available to temporary residents of Australia who have been living in Australia for 3 months prior to buying the insurance. In this situation, you are deemed to be a resident of Australia for the purposes of the insurance, and there is no stipulation that you must be a permanent resident of Australia.
As usual, we recommend that you carefully read the terms of coverage so that you are fully aware of how they might apply to you - and contact the insurer where necessary for an explanation. For example, you should note that if you are returning to your home country on holiday that you would be expected to utilise any National health system as appropriate.
