Australia to Stop Migrants Moving to Sydney and Melbourne. Does this affect GPs?

10th October 2018 | Uncategorized

A report in the Times (here but subscription required) says that Australia is planning to restrict migrants so that they can’t live / work in Melbourne and Sydney.  It will be a condition of entry that migrants must live and work where they are told to go for their first years. However, this will not affect migrants who have been sponsored by particular employers and who need to live & work where their employers are located. So, it looks like this won’t apply to GPs

Myself & my family owe you & Monique a big thank you for getting us to Australia! We have now been here 3 months & loving it! It really is an awesome country. I have now been working as a GP in a health centre just north of Brisbane & really enjoy the job. A welcome change from my job in Glasgow. As you are aware Paul our journey to Oz was not easy & it took us over a year to get here. However your help, advice & support made it possible. I had many obstacles to overcome but you were always there with a email full of advice or a phone call to support me. Monique has also been amazing with all her support before we arrived & especially since we arrived in Australia. The road to Australia as a GP is not an easy one but it was made much more bearable with your support & advice. I honestly think without you we would have given up our dream. I now feel that you & Monique have become my friends & are much more than recruitment agents to me. Again a huge thank you again from myself & my family for helping us to get here & live our dream.
