Vistos de estudante e cobertura de saúde

Vistos

Um visto de estudante é uma permissão concedida a você pelo Departamento de Assuntos Internos da Austrália que descreve as condições sob as quais você tem permissão para residir na Austrália.

A maioria dos vistos de estudante exige que:

  • você foi aceito em um curso de estudo reconhecido
  • você é capaz de se sustentar financeiramente durante a sua estadia
  • você atende a certos requisitos de saúde e tem seguro de saúde adequado.

Enquanto estuda na Austrália, você deve cumprir os requisitos para a concessão do seu visto. Isso significa, por exemplo, que seu curso principal deve continuar sendo um curso no setor educacional que corresponda ao seu visto. Você também deve solicitar uma renovação de visto antes do vencimento do seu visto atual e não deve ultrapassar o prazo de validade do seu visto. Isso significa que você deve sair quando tiver concluído seu curso.

O processo de solicitação de visto de estudante e as informações que você precisará fornecer com sua solicitação dependem do nível de avaliação específico de sua solicitação de visto.

Espera-se que todos os estudantes internacionais cumpram as condições do GTE (participantes temporários genuínos)

Cobertura de Saúde

A Austrália tem um sistema de saúde muito moderno e eficiente. É subsidiado pelo governo australiano.

Overseas Student Health Cover (OSHC) é um tipo de seguro que permite que você use o sistema de saúde australiano e cobre a maioria dos custos de qualquer assistência médica ou hospitalar que você possa precisar enquanto estiver estudando na Austrália. Também pagará alguns medicamentos prescritos e transporte de ambulância de emergência.

Se você é um estudante internacional estudando na Austrália, deve adquirir uma apólice OSHC aprovada de uma organização de benefícios de saúde registrada – comumente chamada de fundos de saúde – antes de solicitar seu visto. Você precisará comprar o OSHC antes de vir para a Austrália, para protegê-lo quando chegar. Você também precisará manter o OSHC durante toda a sua estadia na Austrália.

É uma exigência do DEEWR que os portadores de visto de estudante devem ter cobertura de saúde para estudantes estrangeiros. Abaixo, estão alguns provedores privados de cobertura de saúde para estudantes estrangeiros para sua leitura.

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.
