117 Occupations Open for Migrants Willing To Migrate To The Northern Territory

From cooks to family day care workers and motor mechanics. A number of skilled migrants who might not have ordinarily qualified for a life in Australia will now be able to apply for Australian Permanent Residency. (PR).

The Northern Territory government has opened its door to skilled migrants across 117 occupations and has offered a pathway to permanent residency to these workers who are willing to work and live in the region for at least three years.

In a bid to distribute the migrant population outside Australia’s major cities such as Sydney and Melbourne, the Australian government has designed a new scheme to attract migrants to regional areas across the country.

The scheme – known as the Designation Area Migration Agreements (DAMA)s has been announced for two regions in Australia – Warrnambool region in Victoria and the Northern Territory which are experiencing labor shortages and need a population boost.

The second-such agreement for NT, this time with a pathway to permanent residency, DAMA II came into effect on January 1st 2019.
