@Dee I have already done 1 year couple family subscription with VIC ambulance. So i think its best to unsubscribe from the private health insurance after I get a medicare card. What are your thoughts ?? 

What about medicare levy surcharges in addition to medicare levy??

Not exactly; you have to go through waiting times if you dont have private insurance; also with private insurance dental also can be covered; so i mentioned its entirely your choice.

You can search ATO website for medicare levy surcharge. It is purely based on your Income bracket.

@MZH Thanks. Is it the same medicare card which the Permenent residents get or it is something different. Does it have similar benefits to what PR holders get ?  Is it necessary to have private health insurance after we get medicare card ? Just curious to know. 

It is an intrim medicare card but benefits are probably the same. It is up to you weather you keep the private health insurance or not. If you afford then  you can keep you private health insurance .

I think if applicant doesn't have private health insurance , he/she needs to pay 2.5% medicare levy surchages extra

I don’t know if it’s just me but I feel depress because of this. They don’t care about our mental well being

The last few posts by @X76804. I never understand this person's post. Why not scroll through and find the answer?

Yip it's confusing and we have given up trying to understand his issues? Not sure why he does not just scroll up?

Either you post it or complain, it is up to the minister's discretion  to grant the 887 visa or  suspend processing of visa applications under s 84 of Migration Act 1958 (Cth).

Once they use the s 84 to slow or suspend the processing of the 887 visa, no act is to be done in relation to any application for a visa of the class concerned until the resumption day.

 

We will die on the bridging visas.

Hello Everyone, 

I have a very quick question regarding 2 years residence requirement. I have completed two years in regional area but I went overseas for total 6 weeks in two years. Is it ok to apply for 887 or do I need to wait for six weeks before applying.? Has anyone been granted 887 in this type of situation?

AN expert opinion is required

I would strongly suggest to wait for another 6 weeks then apply.
