*(It is a program requirement that you purchase insurance to cover you 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 insurance policy and cover yourself for your entire time abroad.)
