    English is not a issue for us as we have all taken the English test as part of the requirement for our visa. We have received some rejection but have no idea what was the reason. We have heard that networking is important and it would definitely helps. I recall during the welcome session held by SA, it was highly encouraged to do volunteer work to broaden the networking and opportunity.

    I realise local experience is important. So far , we have not been receiving good news. Worst case is that we plan to move over and then try to get a part time job or something. Finger cross for now .

    Hi Zorkor, Thanks for the information! I have read quite a number of bad reviews about Bupa customer service and the claims process. Hence I was looking up Allianz. I will look up WestFunds to do a comparison

    For oversea health insurance, outpatient fee are covered 100%MBS. I can’t seems to find how much is the MBS rates. The different rates that the insurance provides covers different percentage from 100-150% of MBS.

    @Marisawright I have been comparing the rates and after reading much review, we would go for hospital covers only, include ambulance. It seems like the extras are not worth paying.

    I read that we will not be eligible for Medicare despite the new 491 as our visa will still reflect as 489 . We are planning to move with our dog and am trying to look for apartment that allows small dog.

    Hi All, Thank you for all the info provided. I have been reading some bad reviews of Bupa but I will shop around to see what are our options. I would like to ask if anyone has used any relocation company to more their personal belonging from Singapore to Adelaide? if so, appreciate if you could share the costing and which company used. We do not intend to move our furniture as we thot it would be a better idea to buy from Adelaide.

    Thanks for all the info and help. I read a lot of bad reviews on Bupa, I think we will shop around for diff policy and insist on a writing from the company before committing. Re the private health website, once I choose that I do not have Medisave, it lead me to OVHC and it didn't have questionnaire. Anyone use Allianz insurance before? are they reliable?

    The exclusion is quite general, it doesn’t give much details. I read that Bupa service for claim is quite bad. We are comparing Allianz and Bupa for now to see which one suit us better. I suspect they might just cover the same thing and the diff is the price per month. Oh I have a question, does any of these private insurance covers death? For example, in Singapore if I purchase a death insurance, they will give a pay out if the insurer died of accident. I could not find the info for private health insurance.
