Visas

The following links are provided to assist prospective and current health professionals with information relating to Australia's visas and immigration.

Are you currently working in Australia as a medical doctor on a sponsored 457 or interested in a 475 Visa? If so, there have been recent changes to Australian 457 and 475 Visa conditions.

TEMPORARY BUSINESS (LONG STAY) - STANDARD BUSINESS SPONSORSHIP (SUBCLASS 457)

If you are currently working as a sponsored medical doctor on a 457 Visa, recent changes now allow you to work as a locum outside the hours of your sponsored workplace (as long as the locum work you undertake does not impact your sponsored workplace). This allows you to work as a locum during weekends, holidays, rostered days off and annual leave.
