RDA-Riverina welcomes overseas skilled workers to apply for regional nomination. Skill shortages exist in many parts of Australia, in regional Australia, which allows RDA-Riverina to nominate skilled workers to come to the Riverina. This is just one way the organisation is committed to addressing skill shortages and to enhance business development in the region.

The long-term objective is to encourage these people to stay in the region. This visa is valid for up to four years and after two years of living in regional Australia, including at least 12 months full time working in regional Australia, the nominated skilled workers can then apply for a permanent resident visa.

New regional visas are being presented in November 2019. We will refresh our site to mirror these progressions closer to November. This visa is referred to as the Subclass 489 visa. Applicants must submit an Expression of Interest (EOI)

NB: Assessing and nominating of applications by the Regional Certifying Body can take up to a month, so applicants need to consider this when submitting their application.
