Health Insurance for your 408 Temporary Activity Visa

Are you visiting Australia on a Temporary Activity visa? If you are in Australia to participate in eligible activities, you may be eligible for a 408 Temporary Activity Visa. We offer Overseas Visitors Health Cover (OVHC) for international visitors on the 408 Temporary Activity Visa.

Our OVHC is Australia-wide and lets you access medical and health cover if something happens during your stay.

The Department of Home Affairs requires that 408 visa holders take out health insurance each time you travel to Australia – so you’re covered during your stay.
