Why do I need to pay and obtain Overseas Student Health Cover (OSHC) if I am commencing studies online outside Australia?

OSHC is a mandatory requirement for student visa holders regardless of whether you are physically in or outside of Australia. If you are applying for a student visa, you will need to provide evidence of OSHC cover to the Department of Home Affairs along with your student visa application.
