Visas for GPs initiative. Stronger Rural Health Strategy

The Visas for GPs initiative will manage growth in Australia’s medical workforce by regulating the number of overseas trained doctors (OTDs) entering Australia to work in the primary healthcare sector through the skilled migration program.

New requirements for employers sponsoring overseas doctors to work in Australia are scheduled to commence on 11 March 2019. When employers lodge employer nomination applications for a Temporary Skill Shortage (TSS) Visa, Employer Nomination Scheme (ENS) visas or Regional Sponsored Migration Scheme (RSMS) visa for an overseas trained doctor (OTD) in any of the occupations listed below, they must ensure the application includes a Health Workforce Certificate issued by a Rural Workforce Agency.

Occupations nominated in visa applications:

  • General Practitioner (ANZSCO 253111),
  • Resident Medical Officer (ANZSCO 253112); and
  • Medical Practitioner not elsewhere classified (ANZSCO 253999) occupation.
