Registration to Practice
AHPRA (The Australian Health Practitioner Regulation Agency) is the governing national body covering the registration of Optometrists in Australia. To work in Australia or apply for employment, all practitioners must be registered with AHPRA. Contact us at Allied Health Employment to discuss an application to AHPRA if you are an overseas trained Optometrist. Overseas trained Optometrists with the exception of New Zealand graduates will need to undertake a skills assessment and in most cases an examination or period of supervised practise in order to obtain registration. We can advise you of the requirements and where to apply.
For New Zealand trained and registered Optometrists, there is a mutual recognition process in place with reciprocal registration rights in place. Contact us to discuss this process.

If you not from Australia or New Zealand then you will need a visa to enter Australia and undertake employment.
There are 2 main types of visas which can be used to enter and work in Australia.

1. Working Holiday Visa -

The Working Holiday Program provides opportunities for people between 18 and 30 to holiday in Australia and to supplement their travel funds through incidental employment.
The visa allows a stay of up to 12 months from the date of first entry to Australia, regardless of whether or not you spend the whole time in Australia.
You are allowed to do any kind of work of a temporary or casual nature, but work for more than three months with any one employer is not permitted.
Australia has reciprocal Working Holiday maker arrangements in effect with the United Kingdom, Canada, the Netherlands, Japan, Republic of Ireland, Republic of Korea, Malta, Germany, Denmark, Sweden, Norway, the Hong Kong Special Administrative Region (HKSAR) of the People's Republic of China, Finland, the Republic of Cyprus, France, and Italy, Belgium and Taiwan if you are not from one of these countries, you cannot apply for a working holiday visa.
The Working Holiday Visa is used by backpackers and young travellers who wish to supplement their income while having a holiday in Australia.
Contact us at Allied Health Employment to discuss the most appropriate visa for you to enter and undertake Optometry employment in Australia.

2. Sponsored Employee Visa
Employers can sponsor overseas applicants into Australia for a period of up to four years if they can't fill a vacancy from the local work force. Employees will be under contract and can only work for their sponsoring employer - the visa is provided by the employer and links the employee to the job directly. This is the most common visa for job seekers over the age of 30 or those seeking to work in Australia for a few years or while they arrange immigration. We have a large number of clients across the professions at any one time who are prepared to sponsor the right applicants into Australia. These are across all states and a wide variety of locations. A sponsored visa also allows you to arrange to bring your spouse and dependents to Australia with you as well.
NB: As of mid 2012- Allied Health Employment is able to sponsor Optometrists into Australia on 457 visas to work for us on longer term contracts with a view to permanent residency. If you are looking at coming to Australia, contact us at Allied Health to discuss this program
