Information for International students attending the University of Sydney

Vaccinations for International students

No vaccinations are required to enter Australia unless you come from a country or zone with Yellow Fever within six days before you arrived.

If you do you will require proof of vaccination for Yellow Fever, or you may be held in Quarantine.

Information on vaccines can be found on the Overseas travel page.

Falling ill on arrival

Seek medical attention immediately if you feel unwell on arrival in Australia. Contact the University Health Service for an appointment.

Completing your studies

If you are going to be a health care student or animal care student you need to be aware of the mandatory health screening and vaccinations.

International students

Direct billing arrangements are available for International Students covered by Allianz Overseas Student Health Cover.

If you have health cover from another overseas student health care provider or insurer you will be required to pay at the time of consultation and be reimbursed by your insurer.

Bring your current valid Allianz OSHC Card and photo ID with you to your appointment.


The University Health Service charges non-Allianz OSHC consultations, some vaccines and equipment. Payment is required at the time the service is provided.

If you have to pay fees or charges the UHS accepts payments by cash, credit cards and EFTPOS.
