Few Questions From First-Time Traveler

Recommended Posts

Hi, I have a few questions.

I received an email saying that visa has been granted. What does the visa look like? What do I show to the authorities? Is it the PDF file that contains the VISA grant number?

As a Canadian, is travel insurance mandatory?

I feel like I'm missing something. What could it be?

Your visa s linked to your passport, no need to show anything. 
 

Yes, you should take travel insurance. 
 

You should also consider if now is a good time to travel.

So travel insurance is mandatory? If so, do you or anyone else have any recommendations?

There is no question that now is not the most ideal time to travel.

Thanks

Your visa grant letter will tell you if insurance is mandatory.

I have scanned through the document, and can't seem to find were it states if insurance is mandatory. Will you be able to point me to it?

Under Visa conditions. If it doesn’t say maintain health insurance then it’s not mandatory.

The only thing you might be missing is that you have a limited window to get here.  Check the paperwork to see when you must arrive by.  If you don't arrive by that date, you lose the visa. 

Other than that, you're good to go.  Your only other problem might be getting a flight to get here!

The granted visa will store in gov system so if your passport is sufficient. But just in case, print out the visa pdf and bring with you.

Insurance requirements depends on your visa type, student/working visa need you maintain insurance in Australia but visitor's not.

Australian working holiday visa 417. You need to be a permanent resident to enter the country? 

When did the institute this rule and for how long will it be effective?

Thanks

Since the pandemic. Australia banned none residents from entering.

How long will it last? Who knows. Nobody knows how the pandemic will play out.

No one knows how long it will last but I’d be surprised if anyone will get in this year.

Oh, bad luck. I wonder why they are granting these visas, when there's no way you can get into the country?
