Processing priorities for Healthcare and Teaching occupations located overseas

Written by Julie Williams | MARN 9903637 | Published 8 November 2022

Are you in a healthcare or teaching occupation located overseas?  If so, then Australia wants you!

The Department of Home Affairs has recently published a new Ministerial Direction detailing the groups of occupations that will be receiving priority processing.

Applicants in the healthcare and teaching occupations located overseas will be provided number one priority for Subclass 482 Temporary Skill Shortage visa as well as Subclass 186 Employer Nomination Scheme. This will be followed by visa applications where the applicant is nominated by an approved sponsor with accredited status. The next priority will be given to applications from designated regional areas.

Here is the list of Healthcare or Teaching Occupations which will be given first priority:

  • ANZSCO Sub-major Group 25 – Health Professionals
  • ANZSCO Minor Group 241 – School Teachers
  • ANZSCO Minor Group 411 – Health and Welfare Support Workers
  • ANZSCO Unit Group 1341 – Child Care Centre Managers
  • ANZSCO Unit Group 2346 – Medical Scientists
  • ANZSCO Unit Group 2721 – Counsellors
  • ANZSCO Unit Group 2723 – Psychologists
  • ANZSCO Unit Group 2725 – Social Workers
  • ANZSCO Unit Group 3112 – Medical Technicians
  • ANZSCO occupations:
    • 134311 – School Principal
    • 421111 – Child Care Worker
    • 423111 – Aged or Disabled Carer
    • 423312 – Nursing Support Worker
    • 423313 – Personal Care Assistant.​

If you are an overseas resident with the relevant work experience and are qualified in either the healthcare or teaching profession, book a consultation  with one of our experienced Registered Migration Agents to learn more.

“My experience with Migration Downunder has been excellent. Everything was so straightforward and simple with both applications I’ve processed through the agency. If I ever had a question or a problem, Alice and the team were able to deal with it so efficiently.”

Before any immigration advice can be provided, we must hold an initial consultation which will attract a fee of $385.
