The Australian Government has started a gateway for immigrants with basic hospitality or farm skills to migrate permanently to Australia on a work visa.

New Update for Low Skilled Workers to Get Australian PR

Further agreements of regional migration for the south-west Victoria and Northern Territory will lower the standards for language,  skills, and income for migrant workers.

And they will present a pathway to PR to these workers that earlier did not exist. However, the Government of Australia is asking migrants commit to residing in these regions for a minimum of three years prior to a Australia permanent residency pathway is accessible.

David Coleman, Immigration Minister, told the Government was encouraging the immigration program to match the needs of specific locations better.

The Government has closed choices for permanent residency for many jobs in the migration program in the prior two years, primarily through reforms to profession lists in the skills shortage temporary visa.

It has a pathway to PR through a Australia work visa is only possible to the workers the Government has considered most beneficial, mainly skilled professions required by Australian businesses.

The DAMA gives choices for semi-skilled workers and grants flexibility with its concessions. Typically, work visas must be for workers with sufficient English and pay of minimum $53,900 per year.

However, below the earlier Northern Territory DAMA, a visa may be allowed for a baker, hairdresser or barista with income or language less than these thresholds.

Below the current DAMA, these workers will expect to be given an opportunity to migrate to Australia permanently.

Northern Territory Upgrade

Ms. Seiberth has advised businesses below the prior DAMA in the Northern Territory. She said tourism and hospitality providers had mostly used it for professions such as waitstaff and bar supervisors.

The Government of Northern Territory confirmed that current agreement covers a broader range of professions — 117 in whole, related to 111 presently listed — concurrently with tweaks to salary concessions and English and the proposal of permanent residency.
