About Allianz Care Australia

Our approach

We believe in prevention over cure, care over claims and making the complex simple for everyone. Together with our partners, we help international students, visitors and workers navigate the Australian health system, making it easy to get help when and where you need it.

Our Overseas Visitor and Overseas Student Health Cover helps meet visa conditions for 482, 485, 600 and student visas. Our products and services are accessible online, over the phone, via health and safety apps and face to face – providing support in case you get sick or have an accident while you are in Australia, so you can enjoy your time here with confidence.

Our story

Our passion to assist people was born when our founder experienced first-hand the effort required to bring his injured son safely home from overseas. This experience motivated him to start his own medical assistance company that was dedicated to helping people in need. Our company and brand has evolved over the years as we have grown:

  • We began in 1983 as a medical assistance company called Worldcare
  • In 2001, we joined the Allianz Group, under the name Mondial Assistance
  • In 2012 we rebranded to Allianz Global Assistance
  • In 2020, we transitioned to our global brand Allianz Care 
In recent years, we have grown to become one of the largest providers of health insurance for international students, workers and visitors to Australia 

We’re part of the Allianz Group

The Allianz Group operates in 70 countries around the world, offering a wide range of insurance and risk management products and services to 100 million customers.
