Life Insurance for Temporary Residents in Australia
Full life insurance cover, comparable to that available to Australian citizens and permanent residents, is available from several Australian insurance companies for individuals working on a range of temporary resident visas in Australia.
Income Protection, TPD and Trauma cover is also available, with Income Protection now available to individuals on temporary visas who do not intend to reside permanently in Australia - for example, individuals on the old 457 and new 482 visas, who are just in Australia for a specific assignment.
The premium rates applying to this insurance are usually the same as that applying to Australian citizens and this means that, if a visa holder proceeds to obtain either permanent residency or citizenship, then they can simply continue with their existing cover on an uninterrupted basis unless a change in circumstances - such as marriage or having a young family - suggests it needs to be reviewed again for adequacy.
