A permanent resident visa may be applied for directly without first applying for a temporary working visa in Australia, that is, while working as registered nurse in or outside Australia, under certain conditions if you obtained registered nurse (RN) registration in Australia or in New Zealand. Your application for permanent residence can include your immediate family, (spouse and children below 18 years of age and full time students below 25 years of age). Once your permanent resident visa is approved, and you have validated it by entering Australia, you can reside outside Australia, provided you return to live in Australia within five years.
A temporary working visa may be granted up to 4 years. It entitles a sponsored registered nurse to a minimum salary. Applicants whose experience is more than two years and whose area of practice is in demand are usually offered a higher salary.
