  1. Australia Guide
    Visa Options for Doctors Closure of the Subclass 422 – Medical Practitioner Visa From 1 July 2010, as a result of the closure of the Subclass 422 – Medical Practitioner (Temporary) visa, IMGs applying under the subclass 457 visa program will be required to seek employer sponsorship from an approved standard business sponsor under the subclass 457 visa program. Doctors can apply for either a temporary or permanent visa. For immigration purposes, doctors seeking permanent residency in Australia must hold full medical registration. The department will accept one of the following certificates issued by the State or Territory Medical Board as evidence of full registration: * full/unconditional/general medical registration * conditional specialist registration - this registration allows you to practice only in your particular specialty, with no further training or supervision requirements. Note: The Australian State and Territory Medical Boards are responsible for the registration of all medical practitioners. However, in the case of specialists, the Medical Boards require an assessment from the relevant Australian Specialist Medical College before registering a doctor for practice in their field of specialization. The decision to grant medical registration is entirely up to the relevant State and Territory Medical Board. Temporary Visa Options for Doctors Doctors who do not yet hold full medical registration in Australia can be employed and sponsored as a temporary resident while they are in the process of meeting the requirements to obtain full medical registration. Permanent Visa Options for Doctors There are several different permanent visas available for doctors who have full medical registration in Australia.
