Hi there,

My partner (first year doctor from the Netherlands) and I are planning a move to Australia in the next few years as I am Australian. We have done a lot of research, but it's hard to know where to start - we are also seeing so much contradictory information. I think we are looking at him taking the Standard pathway but I have a few questions, and if anyone can provide advise that would be great!

- We can are considering applying for PR before moving via the partner visa route - is this a recommended choice? I believe he will then be subject to section 19AA of the HIA but I don't quite know what that means. Alternatively he comes on a visa?

- Preferably we would like to get around the rural working requirement (at least initially) so we can be close to family. How does this work exactly with medicare? and does the 10 year moratorium begin from the moment he receives limited registration or when he receives general registration?

- Can he apply to specialise in Australia once he receives general registration?

If anyone has advice or experience on the above areas, I'd greatly appreciate it!
Thanks!

Pagingdr forums are going to be a much better place to post this question as SDN is more of a US/Canada-focused website, so I'd give that a try although hopefully someone here has the background to help you out!
