The Regional Sponsored Migration Scheme Visa

The regional sponsored migration scheme visa enables employers in regional Australia to sponsor overseas skilled workers to fill labour shortages where local workers can’t be sourced. Nominated employees can live, work and study in Australia under the temporary residence transition stream of the regional sponsored migration scheme visa.

This visa has sponsorship and nomination components attached which can add some complexity to the visa application process. The team of experienced migration agents at Visa Solutions have years of experience in this field of migration and will help you navigate the visa application process.

Who can apply?

Overseas workers who have a job offer from an approved Australian employer in a regional area of Australia may apply. In addition, you must:

  • Have worked for your employer full-time for at least three years while holding a subclass 457 or TSS visa
  • Hold a substantive visa or a bridging visa A, B or C
  • Be under 45 years of age
  • Meet the skills, qualifications and English language requirements

Can I include family on my application?

You may include family on your visa application.

Do I need to be in Australia?

You may be onshore or offshore when applying for this visa but if you are in Australia, you must hold a substantive visa or a bridging visa A, B or C.
