TSS Visa (482 Visa) for Doctors

The 8607 visa condition that imposes the work restrictions work quite differently for medical doctors. If you are a doctor and your specialisation is one of the areas stated below, you are not restricted to working for the nominating employer. In other words, on the 482 TSS visa you may work as a doctor for different service providers. However, you are required to work exclusively in your nominated occupation.


Work Restriction Exemption – Medical Practitioners and Corporate Executives

  • chief executive/managing director
  • corporate general manager
  • general medical practitioner
  • resident medical officer
  • anaesthetist
  • specialist physician (general medicine)
  • cardiologist
  • clinical haematologist
  • medical oncologist
  • endocrinologist
  • gastroenterologist
  • intensive care specialist
  • neurologist
  • paediatrician
  • renal medicine specialist
  • rheumatologist
  • thoracic medicine specialist
  • specialist physician (nec)

We stress that the aforementioned exemption exclusively relates to medical doctors on 482 TSS visas. You would still have to continue fulfilling other visa conditions, including maintaining professional regulatory compliance and not ceasing work for more than 6 consecutive months.
