Holiday insurance while on a 457 visa

Recommended Posts

Hi,

 

i seem to be struggling to find holiday insurance as I am on a 457 visa, the insurance companies don't class me as an Australian resident?

 

Has anyone had the same issue or know of a company where this is not an issue?

 

thanks

Have you tried world nomads.com.au....I used them for my husband. He arrived in Oz before us but we had a holiday to Hawaii booked. I phoned these people and used them although I did not need to make a claim. Phone them and ask for advice first though! (I believe that in a medical emergency he would have been sent back to England rather than Oz though.)

It's a total pain in the arse being on a 457 isn't it! A lot of things like this you don't find out till you're actually in Oz :(
