Regional Queensland of Australia Allows Skilled Migration in 70 Occupations

With effect from Sep 12 2019 skilled migration in the regional areas of Queensland got a boost because of the commencement of the Far North Queensland Designated Area Migration Agreement. It will run for the five years and will be a major help in driving economic growth in the region.  

A Boost to Australia Immigration

The DAMA will operate through the Cairns Chamber of Commerce and remain open to employers and business for sponsoring overseas skilled workers in the areas of Mareeba, Cassowary Coast, Tablelands, Cairns and Douglas Shire.  

A DAMA has a set of unique features that allows greater access to regional employers to hire overseas skilled/semi-skilled workmen better than the usual migration pathways. DAMA is a visa program sponsored by employers. The employers first must have approval of the Representative in the Designated Area. After that they can sponsor an overseas worker through the submission of request of DAMA Labor Agreement with the Home Affairs Department.  Queensland presently is open to hire skilled/semi-skilled overseas workers in as many as 70 occupations covering mechanics, farm inspectors’ cooks, childcare workers and many others. 

A Good Performer

In the very first year of work FNQ DAMA has offered 200 regions to enlist skilled migration to regional Queensland based on the Cairns Chamber of Commerce occupations list.  The employers belonging to the Australian designated area only can sponsor the required workers in DAMA. Presently there are seven DAMAs managed by Australia that include:

  • Far North Queensland,
  • Northern Territory,
  • Adelaide City,
  • Great South Coast in Victoria,
  • Orana in New South Wales,
  • Regional South Australia,
  • The Goldfields in Western Australia 

The feeling is that these agreements provide a specially made solution to challenge the skill shortage of several businesses. There is a projection that 60,000 jobs cannot be filled by local population. Additionally, the new DAMA in FNQ will be a major help in tourism, agriculture, health, hospitality and shipping.

The Easy Process

Identical to the other DAMAs, FNQ DAMA can provide extraordinary concession in requirements pertaining to work experience and language to the skilled workers. All Eligible candidates can submit the application to get the Australian PR Visa when they complete three years stay in regional Australia.   We offer the finest immigration consultancy services to the hopeful overseas immigrants.
