Skilled Migration WA expands its Regional Certifying Body role to more Western Australian regions
12 November 2012
Skilled Migration WA has taken over responsibility of several regions from the Regional Development Commissions and is now the Regional Certifying Body (RCB) for the Regional Sponsored Migration Scheme (RSMS) for the following regions in the State:
• Great Southern;
• Mid West;
• South West; and
Regional Development Australia will continue to be the RCB for the Goldfields-Esperance region.
Employer nominations under the direct entry stream for RSMS in the regions listed above will need to be assessed by SMWA.
The direct entry stream is for applicants who have never or only briefly worked in the Australian labour market.
Nominations for the Temporary Residence Transition stream and the Agreement stream do not require RCB assessment.
For more information on the RSMS, please consult the Department of Immigration and Citizenship website or contact DIAC at firstname.lastname@example.org
