Getting to Western Australia

Financial incentives

We are progressing initiatives to support international recruitment and expedite employment for critical workforce shortages. Initiatives include travel exemptions and financial incentives of up to $8,000 to cover flight and quarantine costs.

Visa sponsorship opportunities may also be available for specific vacancies and should be discussed with the recruiting health service provider.

Travel exemptions

While Western Australia has border arrangements in place for people entering from overseas, successful applicants are considered an essential service and will be permitted entry. View information on WA’s entry requirements (external site).

Western Australians seeking to return home from outside Australia for employment will be eligible for these financial incentives and travel exemptions.
