NT in Australia opens up PR pathway for 117 occupations


Low-skilled migrants working in Northern Territory in Australia can now apply for PR. The state has opened up the pathway to PR for 117 occupations. Foreign workers willing to live and work in NT for 3 years can now obtain Australian PR.

The Australian Govt. has launched a new Visa scheme to distribute the immigrant population away from major cities like Sydney and Melbourne. The new Visa scheme is called the Designated Area Migration Agreement (DAMA). It has currently been implemented in Northern Territory and Warrnambool region in Victoria. Both these places needed a population boost as they were struggling with a labour shortage.

NT already had a DAMA in place. However, it did not offer a pathway to PR. The new DAMA which came into effect on 1st January 2019, has a provision for PR.

David Coleman, Immigration Minister, said that the Govt. is trying to improve the immigration system to meet specific needs of regional areas. The priority of the immigration system is to fill in the skill gaps.

The Federal Govt. and the NT Govt. have identified 117 occupations which will now have access to PR, as per SBS News.
