Visas de Estudiante y Cobertura de Salud

Visas

Una visa de estudiante es un permiso que te otorga el Departamento del Interior de Australia que describe las condiciones bajo las cuales se te permite residir en Australia.

La mayoría de las visas de estudiante requieren que:

  • usted ha sido aceptado en un curso de estudio reconocido
  • eres capaz de mantenerte económicamente durante tu estadía
  • cumple con ciertos requisitos de salud y tiene un seguro de salud adecuado.

Mientras estudias en Australia, debes seguir cumpliendo con los requisitos para la concesión de tu visa. Esto significa, por ejemplo, que su principal curso de estudio debe seguir siendo un curso en el sector de la educación que coincida con su visa. También debe solicitar una renovación de visa antes de que expire su visa actual y no debe exceder su visa. Esto significa que debe irse cuando haya completado su curso.

El proceso de solicitud de visa de estudiante y la información que deberá proporcionar con su solicitud dependen del nivel de evaluación específico de su solicitud de visa.

Se espera que todos los estudiantes internacionales cumplan con las condiciones de GTE (entrantes temporales genuinos)

Cobertura de Salud

Australia tiene un sistema de salud muy moderno y eficiente. Está subvencionado por el Gobierno de Australia.

Overseas Student Health Cover (OSHC) es un tipo de seguro que le permite utilizar el sistema de salud australiano y cubre la mayoría de los costos de cualquier atención médica u hospitalaria que pueda necesitar mientras estudia en Australia. También pagará algunos medicamentos recetados y el transporte en ambulancia de emergencia.

Si es un estudiante internacional que estudia en Australia, debe comprar una póliza OSHC aprobada de una organización de beneficios de salud registrada, comúnmente conocida como fondos de salud, antes de solicitar su visa. Deberá comprar OSHC antes de venir a Australia, para tener cobertura desde su llegada. También deberá mantener OSHC durante su estadía en Australia.

Es un requisito de DEEWR que los titulares de la visa de estudiante deben tener cobertura de salud para estudiantes en el extranjero. A continuación, hay algunos proveedores privados de cobertura de salud para estudiantes en el extranjero para su lectura.

If you get sick, you may have to go and see a doctor. In Australia, you do not go to a hospital unless you are seriously ill. You go to your local doctor who will have a surgery near your house. Surgery hours usually start from 9:00 am and the surgery may be open all day. When you arrive, the receptionist will ask you for your Medibank Private Membership card or book. Don’t forget to take your Medibank Private Membership card when you go to the doctor’s surgery. If you cannot leave the house, you can ring the Doctor’s receptionist and make an appointment for the doctor to visit you, which will be more expensive and may not be covered by OSHC.

If you cannot come to the College, the doctor will give you a medical certificate that describes what is wrong with you and says how many days you may stay at home. Do not forget to give your medical certificate to the Administration Manager when you return to the College. You keep the original certificate and we will place a copy on your file.

Under OSHC you are covered for accommodation and/or treatment in Public hospitals. This applies whether you need to stay in hospital or are a patient at the hospital’s outpatient clinic or casualty department. Public hospitals throughout Australia have emergency clinics where you can go at any time of the day or night in an emergency. Doctors at the hospital will attend to you. Some specialist costs may not be covered by OSHC.

For all emergencies that are life threatening, dial 000 from your telephone to be attended by the emergency service departments. This includes Fire, Police and Ambulance services, operating 24 hours a day. Please follow the steps below to get assistance as soon as possible.

  • Ask the operator for the service you need
  • Wait to be connected
  • Describe the problem
  • Be aware of your address or be ready to describe your location as clearly as possible.
  • Listen to any instructions given by the operator.
  • Do not hang up until asked to

Dialling 000 (or 112 from mobiles) is a free call. For general police enquiries please contact a local police station. NOTE: dialling 000 as a prank call or for non-serious events is an offence and you may be in trouble with the police if you do so.

Your Overseas Student Health Cover (OSHC) will cover costs for ambulance only when it is used in a state of emergency where medical attention is needed immediately. The costs for an ambulance used for nonemergency medical transport is not covered by OSHC.

If a student is ill or injured on campus and needs help please contact any member of the College staff, as First-Aid cabinets are available on the premises. The College is not permitted to provide or administer medication to any students.

Students must report all injuries, accidents and near misses to their trainer or a staff member. Students who suffer from a serious illness or allergies or who are required to take medication daily should advise the Student Support Officer for any assistance or special arrangements.
