Visas and immigration

We may appoint someone who isn’t an Australian citizen or permanent resident to a clinical position if there aren’t any qualified and experienced people available.

We sometimes sponsor health professionals, but you can also apply for some visas yourself. Read more about visas and sponsorships on the Queensland Health website.

We can recruit international medical graduates under an area of need declaration if we can’t fill positions with Australian or New Zealand trained medical professionals.

Skills recognition

Internationally qualified candidates must be able to register to practice in Queensland and meet health profession standards.
