Hot of the press is the news that overseas medical specialists wanting to move to New Zealand can fast track their pathway to residence from 4th July 2022.

Immigration NZ has announced that overseas doctors 55 years and younger can arrive on a work visa from July 4th then apply for residence from September 2022.

Medical specialists will need to have registration with the Medical Council of NZ and have accepted an offer of employment in NZ in order to arrive on a work visa, then have a permanent job and registration before applying for residence.

That’s where we come in! We are experts in helping overseas doctors with the end-to-end process. We will work with you to secure a job, plus get Medical Council registration sorted, then support you and your family with your entire move.

If you’re an overseas doctor who wants to move to NZ, and you have post graduate specialist training in Anaesthesia, Radiology, Psychiatry, General Medicine or other medical speciality, contact us!

We welcome enquiries and will happily have informal chats with medical specialists coming from overseas; please contact us for more information!
