Perth and the Gold Coast Are Included in the Regional Areas Now!

The migration cap of Australia remains to be 160,000 which included 23,000 regional visas set aside for migrants who agree to work outside the major cities. But recently, the government has raised it to 25,000 seats.

In our posts, we mentioned, the Australia government is prioritizing the Regional needs of skilled workers by introducing more Regional visas. Australia expects that the new visa will drive the migrant crowds to Regional areas that are crying out for more skilled professionals in their local job markets.

To support the scheme, Labor leader Anthony Albanese said to make Regional areas comfortable for migrants, the government will match up where the job opportunities are, making sure there are settlement processes available.

Coming to Regional visas, not many of you are acquainted with the opportunities and advantages. Let us help you to figure it out and plan for a Permanent residency through a Regional pathway!
