The Regional Sponsored Migration Scheme (RSMS) is designed to help employers in regional or low population growth areas of Australia, who are unable to fill skilled vacancies from the Australian labor market. An employer can take part in the scheme if their business is in any area except Brisbane, Gold Coast, Melbourne, Newcastle, Perth, Sydney and Wollongong Metropolitan regions.

The employer must be able to demonstrate that the position is a genuine full-time vacancy; it is available for at least two consecutive years; and that it requires qualifications equivalent to at least Australian diploma level (this includes trade certificates).

The visa applicant must have relevant qualifications equivalent to at least an Australian diploma; be under 45 years of age and have functional English.

Please contact our office for further detailed information on this Australian visa including how to get the application forms, the fees & costs, timing, supporting documents and forms required to make a valid Australian visa application under the Regional Sponsored Migration Scheme.
