Can I apply for exemption from the 10-year moratorium?

There are some circumstances in which you can be exempted from the 10-year moratorium. These include:

  • working in remote rural areas
  • working in after-hours care
  • working in Indigenous health services
  • working in areas in need of doctors.

See a full list of exemptions to the 10-year moratorium.

If you gain an exemption, you can then be granted a Medicare provider number and billing privileges for your employment.
