Most international students must maintain
overseas student health cover (OSHC) for the duration of their Australian student visa. International students must advise Education Queensland International (EQI) of their arrangements for OSHC in order to receive their Confirmation of Enrolment.
EQI can arrange OSHC on behalf of international students with
Allianz Care Australia, the EQI preferred provider of OSHC or you can choose to purchase your OSHC through any approved provider. If you prefer EQI to arrange your OSHC, your information will be shared with Allianz Care Australia and your data will be stored by
Allianz Care Australia in France and Germany. EQI will receive a commission from Allianz Care Australia for arranging your OSHC.
The following link provides information in relation to the basic medical and hospital services students will receive as part of the OSHC Allianz Care Australia package arranged by EQI.
OSHC packages are also available from the following reputable providers:
Additional insurance cover
EQI recommends that all international students take out additional travel insurance for the duration of their stay in Australia to ensure comprehensive protection for their valuable personal items and medical services not covered by OSHC.
