    hi annie... i tried to choose the overseas student health cover/// here..https://www.bupa.com.au/Application/OSHC but I need to input my 'student' visa details... which i dont have because my visa is SUBVLASS 600 UNDER BUSINESS STREAM. Do u think I should choose the 'overseas visitor' / short stay cover? here... Overseas Visitors Non Working Visa - Health Cover Plans - Bupa - Bupa

    But my problem is the monthly payment..it was stated there that they will auto debit the next billing in my card?? what if ill stay for 3 months only? Can i cancel it after 3 months?

    thanks annie!

    btw, may I ask what insurance and type of VISA u had during ur bp.. thanks!

    Just to be sure, contact BUPA directly. They do answer promptly to emails. I am on subclass 456 (business short stay visa) during my bp days. I didn't obtain an insurance then. But when I applied for a 457 visa, i need to get an insurance for me and my dependants.

    Also, inform BuPA that you will be needing the coverage for 3 months only.

    Where in Australia did you get a job as a dialysis nurse? How much do they pay you? I'm sorry if it's too personal, but I'm really curious.. I'm just starting. I hope you don't mind? Thanks.

    My BP started in January and ended in March. I need to exit last April 6 but during that time, I already have my registration with me. Also, before I went back to the Philippines, I booked a return ticket to Au. I decided to go back to Australia after 20 days because I applied for so many jobs and I was wondering, what if they called and I am not around. I just cant let the chances pass.

    Another thing, I left my mobile phone to my friend here in Au so she was the who received my first invitation for interview. My friend gave me the number and when I called, I informed the Nurse Manager that I'm still in the Philippines because of my visa. The Nurse Manager was kind enough to wait for me to come back.

    My another interview invitation which is from NSW, was just sent thru email.

    I have a friend who did the BP as well, and she's in the Philippines when she had her interview. She passed and right now, she's also processing her visa.

    My sponsorship and nomination was paid by my employer, but the lodging and payment of the 457 visa at my own expense. 457 visa is $455 at the moment. I have read that it will increase by July 1 to $900, but I am not really sure if that's true.

    Good luck everyone. Pray hard, it works.

    Tip: make sure that you have relatives in Australia if you decide to come back, it's just not practical to come back and pay for an accommodation.
    Ms. Annie, Thanks for your message. When you exit australia..is there a minimum day that you should stay in Phils before you come back in australia or is it just a personal decision to stay 20 days here in phils before going back again? also, my passport will expire august 2014. I have to renew it before january 2014. In the event I find a job there in australia, is it better to get the 457 visa 1st then renew your passport or get your passport renewed then apply for 457 visa?

    Thanks!

    There is no minimum or maximum day you should stay in the Philippines. It is a personal decision to go back as soon as i can because I am worried that employers might not be able to reach me if they decided to grant an interview, especially if I stayed for too long in the Philippines. When you apply for a visa, your passport should be at least 6 months valid (i think i've read that somewhere) so to avoid any hassles, just renew it before you apply a visa.

    IHNA is accredited by ANMAC and AHPRA, have a look at the accredited schools,, their older program has been made inactive the one that had conditions placed upon it.
    They apparently were awaiting accreditation from another, as a training organisation for other courses and they had to pass that, before they were given ANMACs approval, which they must have done.
    Thank you @ceridwyn, im just very worried! i will pursue my application then. Maybe my agency is not that updated with IHNA. anyway, if their IRON program is not accredited by AHPRA then why some nurses took their BP in IHNA had their registration certificate. oh well must believe people who knew best! =)

    Hello Marevini,

    I will be taking my intake this September 2013. I read you said you heard a lot of positive reviews about IHNA. I supposed you are already done with your bridging course by this time? How was it taking the bridging course at IHNA? Will they help you find an employer? Are you already working in Australia as a registered nurse? I hope you can help me with this queries.

    Thank you very much and God bless.

    Hello Annie.

    I read you are already done with your bridging course. May I please ask a few questions? Regarding the immunization records, I do not have a record of my past vaccinations, should I take all of those immunizations again for the record? Will the school assist you in finding an employer? How long will it take to apply for a visa for the bridging course? I read that the Subclass 456 is replaced by Subclass 600 but they are basically the same. May I please ask how much fund do I need for this visa including an estimated cost of living for the 3 months course(how much money do I need in order for the embassy to approve my visa)? Thank you very much.
