International nurse and midwife graduates are nurses, midwives and enrolled nurses (or equivalent) who obtained their nursing and/or midwifery qualifications in a country other than Australia.

The Nursing and Midwifery Board of Australia (NMBA) is responsible for determining the appropriate pathway to registration in Australia for international nurse and midwife graduates, including assessing applications for registration.

For more information, see the Nursing and Midwifery Board of Australia (NMBA)External Link website.

Support for international healthcare workers

The international nurse and midwife graduates (INMG) grant program is currently under review. The Victorian Government supports international and Australian health professionals, including nurses and midwives, who have secured a role in a public health service by offering a clear pathway into working in Victoria. This includes offering an international travel reimbursement to help with relocation costs.

For more information, see support for international healthcare workers.
