Hi, We recently arrived in Australia on TSS 482 (my partner is main applicant for TSS 482 visa, I am in Australia as a dependent) and took the private insurance as required by the condition in the TSS 482 visa. However, my understanding is that if we get medicare then the cost of private insurance will decrease. So, we are exploring to apply for medicare. We are both from the United Kingdom which has a Reciprocal Health Care Agreement with Australia. We got British passports and were living in the UK before moving to Australia. The TSS 482 visa has "Visa conditions 8501 - Maintain health insurance". I submitted the PR 190 application in March 2020 (I am the main applicant, partner as dependent). As we are now in Australia, we are eligible for Medicare under "Have applied for permanent residency" category. My queries are below: 1. Can someone confirm that we are eligible for medicare because we got British passport and were living there before coming to Australia? I think we are, the reason I am doubting is because of the condition on our TSS 482 visa "Visa conditions 8501 - Maintain health insurance". Could it be that the medicare card on Reciprocal Health Care ground is not valid if someone is on TSS 482 visa? 2. Assuming we are eligible for medicare from two routes (reciprocal arrangement and via Applied for PR), which route should we choose to apply for medicare. My PR application is in the pipeline and I do not want to have any negative effect on our PR application because of medicare. If there is even 0.0001 % chance, then we are quite happy not to take medicare and continue the private healthcare insurance. 3. I rang the medicare helpline number and the agent did not really seem to understand my concern of any negative effect on my PR application. She simply said to tick both the boxes in the PR application and submit. I can definitely tick the box "Have applied for permanent residency" on page 2 of medicare pdf form but not sure about ticking the box for "Visitor from a country that has a Reciprocal Health Care Agreement with Australia". We are not on visitor visa or tourist visa but on TSS 482 visa. Thx for reading my post.
Hi! I am on a 482 TSS visa (Registered Nurse) . Last week I have resigned from my employer and I am shifting to a new employer who is willing to sponsor me and my tss 482 visa. My question is, how long does it take for an accredited sponsor to transfer my nomination for me to be able to work for them? Does anyone of you have the same experience? Last week my new prospective employer lodged the requirements for the transfer of the nomination. Any feedback or information would be greatly appreciated.
