Dear Students,

We hope that you are well and safe!

It’s been nearly a month now that most of the world has plunged into a lockdown in an attempt to flatten the curve and win the battle against Covid-19. The world will most definitely get through this, but we still need to be careful, as the battle is far from over. Apart from the regular advice that has been circulating all over the news, social media, schools’; websites, etc., we would like to give you a friendly reminder to recheck the expiry dates of important documents.

Important documents, especially in these circumstances, will include:

  • Visas & Passports
  • Driving Licences
  • Health Cover

 

Driving Licence:

In terms of driving licence please be advised that the Victorian State Government has changed the laws recently – after living in Australia for 6 months, you will need to have obtained a Victorian driving licence (for the state of Victoria); you will not be able to use your international driving licence. (More information:

Health Cover:

In terms of health cover, please be advised that as per the Visa Condition 8501 – Health Cover, all international students must maintain their health cover while staying in Australia. Please note that if any changes have been made to your health cover, you will need to let us know at your earliest convenience. Please do so by email, as you cannot update the health cover in your Learner’s App.

Thank you for your attention to this Newsletter.

We hope you remain safe.

Regards,
Orange International College
