Nurses looking to work in Australia on a 457 visa

We've recently been asked about the rules and regulations revolving nurses who wish to come to Australia on a 457 visa and what’s involved in the process.

In order to sponsor Nurses on 457 visas, the usual 457 visa process is followed, however, there are extra registration and licensing requirements. If you’re an overseas nurse looking to come to Australia, you must first be registered in your home country as a nurse, and then you need to apply for Australian licensing via Australian Health Practitioner Registration Agency (AHPRA). Find the AHPRA online here: www.ahpra.gov.au

Prior to submitting the 457 application, it is essential that you go through the AHPRA’s registration process as the Australian registration is required before the 457 visa can be granted. The registration process assesses your skills and qualifications and makes an assessment as to whether you meet the Australian nursing standards.

In addition, they will also have to have relevant educational qualifications in order to meet the skill requirement for this visa.
