In an aim to distribute the migrated population to the cities such as Sydney and Melbourne, the government of Australia has structured a new scheme, namely Designation Area Migration Agreements (DAMA) for their migrants. This is now announced for the Warrnambool region in Victoria and the Northern Territory as they are facing labor shortages and aim for increasing their population.
On January 1st 2019, the DAMA II has come into effect with a pathway for Permanent Residency. David Coleman, the Minister for Immigration, Citizenship and Multicultural Affairs stated that “The Government is working to improve our immigration program to better match the needs of our states, territories and regional areas”.
“Our first priority is always to fill jobs with Australians, but the immigration system can play an important role in helping to address regional skills gaps.
“I am pleased that we can continue to partner with the NT Government to support the skills needs of local businesses where Australian workers are not available to fill those jobs.”
NT Chief Minister – Michael Gunner stated that the introduction of the DAMA II with simpler ways for Permanent Residency has made it easy for the skilled migrants to move and settle in the NT for the longer term.
“The Territory Labor Government’s number one priority is jobs for Territorians but we know access to and retention of, a suitably skilled workforce is a key issue for many employers and there is a need for additional workers”.
“The NT has a long and proud history of migration of overseas nationals and they have been a key contributor to economic growth, population growth, and social diversity. This new agreement will help that continue.”
