Subclass 820, question about the medicare

Recommended Posts

Hi, all.

My wife will submit onshore 820 application, I have the following understanding regarding the BVA and medicare:

[1] She can apply for the medicare as soon as he get the confirmation email after the online application submition (namely pay the fee). And she can enjoy the medicare even the BVA is still not kicked in.

[2] She will also be granted the BVA automatically, but won't have effect untill current 3 months passed with the visitor visa. And thus she can't have working right untill then

[3] Her visitor visa has 2 more year before expire, but it will be automatically canceled after the BVA kick in.

Please correct me if there is any mistakes.

 

Thank you!

Yes to all 3 questions

Hi Sammy,  

I received my letter today with the grant of Bridging Visa A. When I went to Centre link they said I have to wait for the Bridging Visa to be active and can’t apply now. 
Is this true? Or did I maybe get someone that hasn’t dealt with my visa type before?

From the Medicare website:

 

You can enrol in Medicare if you live in Australia and have applied for either:

  • a permanent residency visa, except for a parent visa
  • a permanent protection visa.

You must also be any of the following:

  • on a visa allowing you to work
  • able to prove your parent, spouse or child is an Australian citizen
  • able to prove your parent, spouse or child is a permanent resident
  • able to prove your parent, spouse or child is a New Zealand citizen living in Australia.

This includes if you’ve applied for a combined spouse visa 309/100 or 820/801.

You can enrol in Medicare from either:

  • the date you applied for permanent residency
  • the date you arrived here to live if you applied outside Australia.

The date you apply for permanent residency may be different to the date you got your temporary 309 or 820 visa.

 I can confirm that you can apply medicare even the bridging A is not valid. I did it this monday.

You can print the page Sam gave to you and explain to them, some medicare staff just don't know the policy very clear.

If they still can't, just change a center or change another staff try again.

good luck.
