Skilled Migration Update

The Regional Sponsored Migration Scheme (RSMS) or regional employer nominated 187 visa program is ending in a matter of weeks. Employers must get nomination submitted to the Department of Home Affairs by 15 November 2019 and are encouraged to apply for Regional Certifying Body advice by this date. However, the deadline only applies to when applications must be submitted to the Department and does not apply to RCBs (which is the role performed by Regional Development Australia Northern Inland.

The Skilled Work Regional (Provisional) (subclass 491) visa replaces the Skilled Regional State Nominated (subclass 489) visa on 16 November 2019. There are many positives about this program, which helps to bring skilled migrants to where they needed. Details will be published on our website as they come to light and are confirmed. RDANI expects to be publishing our region’s Occupation List for the 491 visa one week prior to the commencement of the visa.
