Can I be restricted by 19AA and 19AB at the same time?


You will be restricted by 19AA if you are a permanent resident or Australian citizen until you gain your fellowship and you will be restricted by 19AB for a ten year moratorium if you completed your degree overseas. So, if you completed your degree overseas and are a Permanent Resident or Australian Citizen you will be restricted by both 19AA and 19AB.
