Doctors and PR

Recommended Posts


Id like to pick your brains re pathway to permanent visa for docs - Ive been lurking for a while and can't figure it out ;).

 I have secured post as a consultant post and will be coming out initially of 482.  My assessment by relevant college is completed and Ive been accepted for Specialist Assessment Specialist Pathway: Substantial comparability placement. This enables me to get provisional registration with AHPRA.  I have applied for this and waiting for same to be completed to progress visa.  Intention is to start work as soon as this is done.

I have 75 points  - Is it possible for me to apply for permanent residency when AHPRA paperwork through or will I have to wait 12 months until on general registration with AHPRA?

I’m no expert and can’t offer any tangible advice, however, reading your post I would think as a complete layman that being accepted to the specialist assessment specialist pathway, being a consultant and having 75 points gives you some pretty fabulous chances to gain your PR pretty quickly and smoothly! I would recommend you contact one of the awesome migration agents that regularly post on here, I’m sure they can help you through your journey and my best wishes to you xxx @Raul Senise is one that springs to mind, he’s been so lovely and helpful to others on here but there are many more agents helping on here and I’m sure people will come along with some recommendations.

The rules and Regulations surrounding visas for Doctors are very specific and change regularly, with a new initiative starting today, see here.

It is niche market and I would suggest using an Agent who specialises in Medical Practitioner visa applications.

See here for some general information.
