Australia Permanent Residency – 117 Occupations Now Available

Australia Permanent Residency – 117 Occupations Now Available

Good news for low skilled migrants, as they are now able to apply for an Australian Permanent Resident visa.

Northern Territory (NT) just opened 117 new job opportunities for skilled migrants. Alongside, NT offered also a pathway to the low skilled migrants a permanent residency pathway, considering that they are willing to work and stay in the regional area for a minimum of three years.

With the goal to stop the overflowing migrant intakes in major cities such as Sydney and Melbourne, the government has started implementing the new skilled migration scheme named Designation Area Migration Agreements (DAMA)s to attract applicants to regional areas.

With a pathway to permanent residency status, DAMA II took effect 1st January 2019.

“Our first priority is always to fill jobs with Australians, but the immigration system can play an important role in helping to address regional skills gaps. The NT has seen first-hand the benefits of using a DAMA to respond to their unique workforce shortages,” Mr. David Coleman, Minister for Immigration, said.

It is really a great opportunity for people intending to migrate to Australia from Singapore or elsewhere experiencing difficulty penetrating to Australia’s major cities.
