The subclass 485 Visa enables overseas graduates to live, work and travel within Australia temporarily after they’ve finished their studies. This post-study working visa helps international students develop and apply the skills they gained from their graduate degree. It also helps overseas students be more employable upon their return to their home country, or before they start another Australian visa.

Is your Bupa OSHC about to finish?

Australia’s Department of Home Affairs requires you to have continuous health cover during your stay in Australia. Therefore it’s not uncommon for students to have both OSHC and 485 cover with Bupa while you’re applying for your 485 visa. So you may have two sets of cover at the same time while you wait for your visa. Don’t worry – you won’t be out of pocket. We’ll backdate the end of your Bupa OSHC cover to match when your new cover starts, so you won't pay for any overlapping cover.
