Australia may sustain the occupation of doctors in its Skill Occupation List (SOL) in 2017, in spite of all the questions raised about the same. The debate is going on for a long whether or not the occupation of healthcare providers stay in the Skilled Occupation List as a group of people believes that Australia now has enough doctors to cater to the healthcare needs of Australians.
What is Skilled Occupation List (SOL) of Australia?
Australian government every year releases a list of those occupations, which are highly in demand across various states and territories of Australia. This list is called the Skilled Occupation List (SOL) of Australia. This list is updated every year by the government and consequently, a few occupations get added and few get deleted from the SOL, as per the current demand of occupations across Australia.
Doctors are likely to remain in 2017 SOL
In the recent past, a few stakeholders consistently emphasizing on eliminating the doctors from SOL, saying that Australia now has enough qualified doctors to meet the local healthcare needs. However, at now, doctors are likely to remain in the list. It means the foreign doctors, i.e. surgeons, GPs, and anesthetists, etc. will still be able to apply for skilled visa in Australia under the Skilled Migration Program. However, the most of job vacancies for them will be available in rural Australia.
Shortage occurs in Rural parts as Doctors prefer to work in Cities
The government is convinced about the fact that shortage of doctors is still there in rural parts of Australia. This is largely due to both Australian and foreign doctors desire to work in cities and towns instead of rural parts of the country.
Hence, Australian government is looking in no mood to remove the Doctors from the next Skilled Occupation List, when it is released probably in July 2017. However, it might be possible that the overseas doctors will be issued visa on the condition that they be in agreement to work in the rural parts of Australia.
Despite the claim by health department that shortage is over, the government only removed 4 occupations from the total 41 occupations from Skilled Occupation List (SOL) of 2016-17. The occupations that were removed from the list were technicians and therapists, dental hygienists, prosthetists. Moreover, eight were marked for possible elimination; however, most of them were sustained by the government.

Visas Avenue proven to be good consultant when it's regarding processing my Canadian pr. To me they were professional and I’m completely satisfied with the accountability they have shown in my case and follow ups they did for me. Rajeshwari.V is my Case Manager for Canada and she did an excellent job in explaining me the whole process/ documents needed and how/where to get them.

I knew the whole process and yet I took help of visas avenue as I wanted professionals to fail-proof my application and make sure it cause no extra unnecessary delays and that’s exactly what I got for them.

Mr. Lenin Reddy
Highly recommend them. This is not my first experience with them, but in fact have got my brother s, bhabhi s and two friend s applications already processed through them. The fees is quite reasonable and transparent and even for a straightforward case, I would recommend going with VA. Special shout out to Vaibhav and Samiksha for standing with me throughout the process. Thanks a ton, guys!""The best thing about Visa Avenues is that when they take up your application, they really get invested in the process. I started off with a 189/190 application but when the application conditions changed, VA advised me to go for 489. This is significant as they normally dont lodge 489 applications, but did it on my behalf as I was already a client. This willingness to go beyond what is strictly required is what I appreciate the most. Further, they are very diligent in going through the requirements and in dotting every i and ticking every t.
"Visa Avenues is a superb professional services available for immigration related consulting. They are super prompt, reliable, thorough and provide alternatives if required. My experience is based on working with Samiksha Lal, Vaibhav Saini and Shivangi Arora."
