The Government is encouraging skilled workers to move to regional areas to fill the skill shortage gap. It's advantageous to study in a regional area, for a couple of reasons

  • On the points-based system, you would benefit from an additional 5 points by studying in a regional area
  • Regional visas have priority processing
  • If you gain work in a specified DAMA regional area, you would be exempt from the minimum salary required ($53,900) on the new 494 and 491 visas

What is DAMA? It’s a formal agreement between the government and the regional authority to boost skilled workers in specified regional areas. The benefit of working in a DAMA region is that you don’t need to comply with the minimum annual salary of $53,900 (known as the TSMIT - Temporary Skilled Migration Income Threshold), which makes it slightly easier to apply for the pathway to permanent residency. Under DAMA, you need to be sponsored by the regional area.
