Partner Visas and Medicare

Vision Direct

Is a Partner Visa Applicant Eligible for Medicare?.

You can enrol in Medicare if you live in Australia and have applied for a Permanent Resident Visa.

This includes if you’ve applied for a combined Onshore Partner Visa 820/801.  The application for this is actually for the Permanent Visa (801), even though a temporary one (820) is issued first.

An application for the subclass 300 PMV is not a permanent residency visa application. These applicants can only apply for Medicare after they apply for the 820 visa.

When can you can enrol in Medicare?.

  • The date you applied for permanent residency, as an Onshore (820) applicant.
  • The date you arrived here to live, if you applied outside Australia.
