457 and TSS 482, 491 and 494 Visa Holders
If you are a foreign graduate of an Accredited Medical School (FGAMS) and hold a 457 or TSS 482, 491 or 494 visa and meet certain requirements, you may be able to apply to the AGPT 2021 program and train with GPEx.
GPEx has a network of training practices willing to sponsor and employ temporary visa holders.
It is an expectation of the AGPT Program that temporary visa holder applicants obtain Australian permanent residency, or Australian or New Zealand citizenship, by the end of the first 12 months of community general practice training.
Holders of 457 and TSS 482, 491 or 494 visas who wish to receive a letter of support from GPEx to apply to the AGPT program in South Australia can email email@example.com for a list of requirements.
A GPEx letter of support is not a guarantee of a training offer and applicants are still required to go through the selection process of their chosen general practice college/s.
