Country With A Reciprocal Healthcare Agreement With Australia

The Australian government has RHCA with the governments of the United Kingdom, Sweden, the Netherlands, Finland, Norway, Malta, Italy, Belgium, the Republic of Ireland and New Zealand. The new RHCA can be negotiated at any time. The provision of medical services in these countries may be more limited than under the NHS. You must ensure that you have valid private travel insurance when travelling ashore. While the systems are essential to help Australian travellers, it is important to remember that the agreement is not an overall cover of all medical costs. There are many conditions and exceptions to the agreements, depending on the country with which the agreement is concluded. Smartraveller recommends purchasing travel insurance for international travellers to help in a way in health agreements. Mutual health agreements or RHCa agreements are intended to help Australians travelling abroad cover emergency medical expenses or access medical care that cannot wait for them to return home. In Australia, we are fortunate to have eleven mutual health agreements with different countries around the world. Norwegians need a valid Norwegian passport and proof of valid insurance under the Norwegian national insurance system or a valid European Health Insurance Card (EHIC) with the initials NO. They are insured for the duration of their stay in Australia until the expiry date of their visa, national insurance or CEC card. This is why Australian international visitors must purchase health insurance prior to their arrival, unless their country has a mutual health agreement with Australia.

Both travel insurance and the health protection of foreign visitors (OVHC) can contribute to the cost of medical care in Australia. Please note that this information is correct at the time of writing, but may change. You can check the current status of any mutual health agreement for which you are allowed to check here on the Australian government website. If you come from a foreign country that is not eligible for the mutual health agreement, another option is available to you, called Overseas Visitors Health Cover (OVHC). There are two kinds of student health coverage (OSHC) and health coverage of work visas.
