The new TSS visa came into effect on March 18, and it will provide skilled migrant workers with the opportunity to work in their specialised field for an approved sponsor in Australia. As with the old 457 visa, holders and applicants of the TSS visa are required to have adequate health insurance under condition 8501.
The Australian Tax Office will be investigating over 20 million foreign visa holders over the next three years. That means migrants and visitors need to ensure they’re meeting every single visa condition – including relevant tax obligations, super contributions and health insurance.
Are you migrating to Australia soon? You may need health insurance, depending on where you’re from and how long you’re staying.
