This module covers immigration requirements that must be considered before committing to employing an overseas-trained doctor (OTD). Please note that RDN is not a Migration Agent and thus is not permitted to give immigration advice. The information is, therefore, necessarily general in nature.

At the end of this learning activity you will have a greater understanding of:
  • Department of Immigration and Border Protection (DIBP) activities and services.
  • General immigration requirements for OTDs.
  • Visa classes and general information for working in rural practice.
  • Obligations for visa sponsors.
  • Conditions for New Zealand citizens under the Trans-Tasman Travel Arrangement.
Course last updated December 2016.
