‘Visas in three days’ for teachers and nurses who want to come to Australia

Visas for teachers and healthcare workers are now being assessed within days after the Australian government changed the way it prioritises skilled visa applications.

Skilled visa applications for teachers and healthcare workers are now being assessed in just three days after a change to how skilled visas are prioritised.

The Department of Home Affairs has stopped using the Priority Migration Skilled Occupation List (PMSOL) to rank skilled visa applications as it was seen as outdated and no longer reflected the critical workforce shortages seen across Australia.
