This week, Interstaff’s Managing Director, Sheila Woods commented on how the upcoming Regional Skilled Visa changes will impact businesses in the Resource Industry in an article for The Australian Mining Review and The Australian Oil and Gas Review newspapers.
With the new Regional Skilled Visas commencing on 16 November 2019, the article provides some timely information for businesses and we encourage you to have a read.
About the 494 Regional Visa
If you are an employer in Perth, the Gold Coast or a regional/remote area, you may be particularly interested in the new visa as an alternative employer-sponsored option to engage skilled visa holders.
Compared to the 482 TSS Visa program, the new Subclass 494 Skilled Employer Sponsored Regional (SESR) Visa enables employers to sponsor workers under a broader list of eligible occupations with priority visa processing and a direct pathway to Permanent Residence.
