Skilled Migrants & Employers in regional areas will be given priority on visa application processing.
The Minister for Immigration announced that the government will support $19.4 million in funding over the next four years to support regional areas to attract skilled migrants.
Skilled Migrants & Employers who are willing to live and work in regional areas will be given priority in the processing of visa applications.
Where Australian workers are not available, visa settings will be tailored to suit the needs of specific regions through tools such as Designated Area Migration Agreements (DAMAs)
NT recently signed its second DAMA agreement, and Warrnambool on Victoria’s Great South Coast is expected to sign one soon.
DAMAs provide flexibility for regional employers to sponsor migrant workers, as well as incentives to migrants to live and work in regional areas, including by creating a pathway to permanent residence – said Mr Coleman
