The recently implemented Designated Area Migration Agreement (DAMA) covering the area around Kalgoorlie-Boulder offers unique opportunities for people with lower-level skills occupations, English less than competent and even for the applicants over 45 years of age.

There are 72 occupations on the DAMA list including some that are not on any other migration list like for example Child Care Worker, Bar Attendant Supervisor, Driller Assistant and Truck Driver just to mention a few. One must be aware though that visas under DAMA must be employer-sponsored. To initial visa, in most cases, would be TSS (temporary working visa) but for nearly all the listed occupations there is a pathway to a permanent visa. The workforce shortages in the Goldfields are severe so anybody who is able to apply for jobs there in person might succeed. For people who are on the working holiday visas and are looking for a pathway to PR, it might be a good idea to visit Kalgoorlie. There are some colleges there so enrolling to one of them and getting a student visa might be another way to find a sponsoring employer.
