Hi All, I’m new but very confused and hoping someone can help. We have been living and working in AUS on sponsored 457 visa sice August 2016. I’m English and my wife has a Philippine passport. I work in healthcare and she works for. NSW council. My company have applied for the employer nominated scheme (subclass 186) for us to become PR’s. My question is can we now get Medicare for my wife or do we have to wait the 14 months this process takes before she can get Medicare cover?

Thanks in advance for any have and advice. No Medicare cover for her has worried me for the last 2 years. BUPA essential visitors cover is just not as good!

457 to 186 PR

The company applied and named us in the application, we went to Medicare and they said they can't see anything in the system. Do we have to wait for the application to be approved?

I understand it to be a 2 part process. Part 1 the company nominate me as they are an approved employer for the job. Part 2 application for visa under the nominated stream. So my company did there but, being part 1. Do I now have to do part 2 and when can I do that? Now?
