Welcome to the Australian Visa Forum GoingDownunder

 

Firstly, it is not a requirement that your wife have travel insurance as far as her visitor visa is concerned. However travel insurance is highly recommend for the reasons you have stated. Indeed medical treatment in Australia is extremely expensive. As with any insurance policy it is very important to note not only what is covered under the policy, but what isn't covered as well.

On all our overseas trips we have always used Covermore. Easy to book online.

 

Touch wood we have never needed to make a claim.

Yep, not having travel insurance can be very costly indeed. Just read this evening about a Kiwi guy that had a motor bike accident in Thailand and is now on life support in a Bangkok Hospital. His hospital and doctors bills are already up to NZ$150,000. Nasty stuff indeed.

We recommend using Fastcover for travel insurance
