About the RSMS Visa:

The Regional Skilled Migration Scheme (RSMS) visa (known as the subclass 107 visa), is a visa scheme designed to grant permanent residency to skilled migrants willing to work in regional areas. Your occupation must be on the RSMS occupations list, and you must have experience in that occupation to qualify.

As this visa has plenty more available occupations compared to the Temporary Skill Shortage (TSS 482) or the Employer Nomination Scheme (ENS 186), it’s a great opportunity to obtain reliable employment and permanent residency in Australia. You will need to obtain an employer nomination before applying for the visa. There are two streams, direct entry and temporary visa transition, which suit different types of applicants.

Direct Entry Stream:

The direct entry scheme is for applicants who do not currently have a temporary working visa. It is subject to slightly longer processing times compared to the temporary residence visas, and requires a skills assessment, as well as work history of 3 years in your occupation at a highly skilled level. Applicants can apply for this in or outside of Australia.

Although you’re granted the ability to work, study, live and travel indefinitely in Australia if you hold this visa, one of the conditions of this stream is that you must work with your employer in regional Australia for at least two years. Learn more about the direct entry stream here.

Temporary Residence Stream:

If you currently work on a 457, 482 or other eligible temporary work visa in Australia, or have worked and are currently on a bridging visa, you may apply for the 187 visa through the temporary residence transfer stream. You must have worked in Australia for at least three years prior to applying through this stream. A skills assessment and work history is necessary, but you will have likely obtained this through your current working visa. Learn more about the temporary residence stream here.

Occupations Available:

On March 11, 2019, the occupations list for RSMS visa applicants was updated and expanded. You can view that list here.
