Regional Sponsored Migration Scheme (RSMS) Permanent visa (subclass 187)

The Regional Sponsored Migration Scheme (RSMS) encourages migration to areas outside the metropolitan centres. It allows Australian employers in regional, remote or low population growth areas of Australia to sponsor foreign skilled workers for permanent residence to fill skilled vacancies in their business.

The employer’s business, as well as the nominated position, must be located in a regional area. The RSMS covers all of Australia except Brisbane, the Gold Coast, Sydney, Newcastle, Wollongong and Melbourne.

If you are interested in applying under RSMS, please call us to arrange a consultation with one of our experienced Immigration Lawyers and Registered Migration Agents.
