To study to become a qualified Medical Professional please see our Student Visa Page

If so, your skills are in high-demand, and the Department of Immigration will now process visas lodged in these categories as a matter of priority. This means that people with skills across multiple medical fields are in short supply, which also means that employment opportunities are abundant.

While the Department of Home Affairs will process your visa application as a priority, it will still need to meet and satisfy strict criteria. We know what a perfect application looks like and will ensure that everything is arranged in a way that best suits the Department’s standards before lodgement. Our Staged Migration Process will provide you with the peace of mind to know that your application has the very best chance of success because it has been prepared by an immigration expert.
