Regional certifying body
If you need to boost your workforce by sponsoring highly skilled foreign workers, we can help.
We are a Regional Certifying Body for Queensland. That means we help employers sponsor permanently highly skilled foreign workers (ANZSCO skill levels 1 to 3) under the Regional Sponsored Migration Scheme (RSMS).
The RSMS is one of the Department of Immigration and Citizenship's (DIAC) employer permanent sponsored migration visa programs. It allows employers in regional or low population growth areas of Australia to fill skilled positions that they are unable to fill from the local labour market with skilled workers from overseas.
Any employer can participate in the scheme as long as demonstrates to us that:
- there is a genuine need for a paid employee to work under the employers direct control in their nominating business that is actively and lawfully operating in the regional area covered by RSMS
- the terms and conditions of employment are the same as those that would apply to an Australian citizen or Australian permanent resident performing the same work in the same location.
- the nominated position cannot be reasonably filled from the local labour market.
All areas of Australia are covered except Brisbane, the Gold Coast, Newcastle, Sydney, Wollongong & Melbourne. A list of postcodes specifying which parts of Australia are considered regional for RSMS purposes can be found here.
