*It is a program requirement that you are covered under an international insurance policy during your time in Australia on the 462 visa. American citizens are not eligible for any coverage under Medicare (Australia’s socialized medical system). We recommend you take advantage of the BUNAC comprehensive insurance policy and cover yourself for your entire time abroad.
It is a requirement of the visa that you are a high school graduate, you may be required to provide documentation of this to a customs officer so we suggest bringing a copy of a diploma or transcript to be safe.
