Thanks everyone for reply. Yeah I'm not sure about working holiday visa now.... Thinking about 12 month visitor visa. Does anyone know if I'll be covered under medicare to have the baby in Australia?

I believe you *are* eligible for Medicare since you've applied for the 309. I know I've seen posts here about it and I remember one of our forum regulars successfully got a Medicare card when in Australia on a tourist visa while waiting for her 309 to be processed. I think she did have to argue with the front-line Medicare folks though and get a manager involved as the lower-level workers there weren't aware of the eligibility.

Australia has health care agreements with a number of European countries, from the Medicare website it's my understanding that any visitor from those countries (regardless of visa type) are entitled to reciprocal Medicare, this information can be found here: http://www.humanservices.gov.au/cust...are-agreements

Reema, sorry but I'm a little annoyed that all your worrying about is Medicare and the Baby bonus. Apply for your visa and what happens happens. Good Luck

Those are important considerations when planning your future while pregnant.

Medicare is important while you are pregnant, you need to have scans and check ups and of course having the baby. It's important to know where you stand with this and make an informed decision of where the baby should be born, healthcare is free in the UK, so it's not like they're the trying to abuse the system.

Healthcare is never free. It's funded by our taxes.

Well said !

That's probably why it is a bit annoying for some people when someone seems only concern about the benefits they are going to get.

Not going into an argument with anyone regarding this issue. I'm just stating my opinion. Thank you and Merry Christmas.
