I don't know anything about the various classes of visa so can't answer your specific question about the category of visa I'd be pursuing. As I indicated previously, I would simply be arriving as a tourist for six months.
You stated, in your reply to me, "The only people that are eligible to get Medicare benefits are permanent residents of Australia."
Is that truly accurate? I'm questioning whether it is, given the following related information from an Australian-government website:
"Citizens of the UK, Sweden, Finland, Norway, Netherlands, Belgium, Republic of Ireland* and NZ* are covered for the duration of your approved time in Australia.
Citizens of Malta and Italy are covered by Medicare for a period of 6 months from the date of arrival in Australia."
So, without commenting on another lawyer's prior comments, would you please simply tell me if, as an Italian citizen/resident, I am entitled to access the Australian Medicare system during my six-month visit as a tourist. Thank you very much.
