Australian visa requirements

If you are an international medical graduate (IMG) who has secured employment in Australia you will need to apply for an appropriate visa for yourself and any family members accompanying you to Australia.

Your employer, or the recruitment agency who managed your recruitment application, will generally provide guidance and assistance in obtaining the correct visas.

The Australian Department of Immigration and Border Protection (external site) is responsible for processing and assessing visa applications and ensuring compliance with Australia’s immigration laws.

The website provides resources about the various types of visas available including temporary and permanent visas and outlines the requirements and application process in detail.
