RDA Southern Inland invites skilled migrants to apply for sponsorship to live and work in the Southern Inland region of NSW, under the Regional Sponsored Migration Scheme (RSMS).
The RSMS allows skilled migrants to fill employment vacancies where there are no local Australian applicants available. Employers in regional Australia can nominate skilled migrants to fill a full-time vacancy, when there is a genuine need for a paid employee.
RDA Southern Inland certify RSMS Visa applications (187) and also sponsor State Sponsored Migration (489) Visa applicants.
Before applying to RDA Southern Inland for sponsorship of the 489 Visa, you are advised to read the current Skilled Occupations List which lists the occupations, where there are skills shortages in the Southern Inland region. CLICK HERE to see the current Skilled Occupations List.
