    Although the Australian government has blocked the pathway to permanent residence for almost all skilled professionals aged 45 and over, medical professionals continue to be an exception to this rule. Under current legislation, there is a pathway to permanent residence for medical practitioners who have been working in Australia for at least 4 years on a 457 visa where 2 of those years were spent working in regional Australia AND the doctor is being nominated for permanent residence by a regional medical practice/hospital/clinic etc. There are a few other visa requirements to be met, but this does mean that doctors in their late 40s, 50s and 60s (and beyond!) continue to have a solid pathway to permanent residence.
