Coming to Australia to work on a temporary basis?

Coming to Australia for a holiday?
If you’re coming to Australia for a holiday or to visit family, you may be eligible for a Visitor Visa (600). While most people on a 600 visa don’t require health insurance as a condition of obtaining their visa, there are some cases where the Department of Immigration and Border Protection won’t grant the visa until an applicant holds adequate private health insurance.
