Regional Visa Opportunities – List of DAMA Agreements
The Designated Area Migration Agreement also referred to as the “DAMA” or “DAMA visa,” is designed to assist employers operating in regional areas who have specific needs to recruit skilled and semi-skilled overseas workers for positions they are unable to fill with Australian workers.
The DAMA can be approved for a larger amount of occupations and may have lower requirements. The migrant workers can be nominated for the temporary working visa TSS or permanent residency visa ENS. Skilled and semi-skilled workers in occupations which are not on the lists for any visa may be able to access skilled Australian migration through the DAMA program.
DAMA might also provide concessions wirh regards to the TSS and ENS visa requirements. They might include lower level of English, age limit higher than 44 and a lower pay than the required minimum by Immigration (TISMIT)
