Visa Holders and Applicants
If you hold a Permanent Residency visa then you can access Medicare. If you have applied for a permanent residency visa then you may also be able to access medicare if you:
– are currently on a visa with work rights; or
– are able to prove your parent, spouse or child is an Australian citizen or permanent resident; or
– are able to prove your parent spouse or child is a NZ citizen living in Australia.
If you have applied for a partner visa and the visa you held immediately before applying does not have work rights, then your access to medicare will be available when your bridging visa activates if you cannot meet the general requirements.

We otherwise hope this communication finds everyone safe and well.
