Nurses, doctors, and software engineers on temporary visas blocked from returning to Australia because of travel restrictions will have their exemptions fast-tracked under a new government plan.

The federal government has announced a priority skill list to lure back temporary visa holders who have been stranded overseas by the coronavirus pandemic.

Nurses, doctors, construction managers, and software engineers are among those who could be prioritized for travel exemptions to fill skill shortages under the government’s plan.

Anyone granted an exemption will still need to complete 14 days of quarantine at their own expense.

Hundreds of temporary visa holders have been blocked from returning to Australia because of tough international border restrictions imposed to limit the spread of COVID-19.
