Visitor To Australia and need Travel Insurance for Overseas Holiday?
For those Non Residents in Australia on tourist visas etc who want to travel overseas on holidays, getting travel Insurance is often a problem, as Australian Insurers normally say that they only provide Travel Insurance cover for Australian Residents.
But.. How do they define an Australian Resident ?
Most say they have to have PR.
I got this one though:
Columbus Direct Australia provides travel insurance to residents of Australia, which we define as someone who has been residing here for at least 3 months at the time purchase and includes, Citizens, PRs and those living here on a Visa (e.g. work, student, holiday).
A person living in Australia on a Visitor Visa, and in Australia for over 3 months, is eligible for Travel Insurance for a short holiday outside Australia.
