Australian Work Visa Update

The Australian Department of Health and Ageing has sent out a bulletin highlighting potential skilled migration list changes.  GPs are not on this “potential changes list”, so they should remain on the Medium and Long Term Shortage Occupation List (MLTSOL) through to at least January 2019.  I.E. GPs should still be able to get 4 year / renewable visas with the option to apply for PR. However, the DoHA can change these lists whenever they want to but it is unlikely that they will do so until the next scheduled review – January 2019

 

N.B. The two medical occupations which have been highlighted to move are anaesthetists and dentists – flagged to move from the Short Term list to Regional Occupation List

 

I recently moved to Perth in Western Australia to start work as a General Practitioner. It was a daunting prospect initially, when searching for suitable posts, especially without having been to Australia before. The formal registration process appeared challenging and time-consuming to start with. However, during the process, I found Monique and Paul to be very supportive, providing reliable and accurate information when needed. I would highly recommend using their valuable insight to those contemplating the move in the near future.
