South Australian Regional Workforce Designated Area Migration Agreement

– Inner regional South Australia: Adelaide Hills, Murray Bridge, Gawler, Barossa, Light and Lower North, Fleurieu Peninsula with postal codes 5118, 5131-5134, 5136-5142, 5144, 5151-5157, 5172, 5201-5204, 5210-5214, 5231-5237, 5240-5245, 5250-5256, 5350-5353, 5355, 5360, 5371-5373, 5400, 5410, 5501 and 5502; Once the DAMA employment contract has been approved, eligible skilled foreign workers can be sponsored for a DAMA SA visa by a confirmed employer working in a given region for a profession defined in the main agreement. * Some agribusiness occupations are eligible for these postal codes in the Adelaide metropolitan area, as agri-food activity takes place in these areas. Such a concession allows sponsoring employers to access a TSMIT (Temporary Skilled Migration Income Threshold) concession. The TSMIT is a pay threshold to begin with, which aims to protect lower-paying Australian jobs and ensure that visa holders have adequate means of support while studying in Australia. Where the TSMIT discount applies, the employer must make available to the visa holder an amount of annual income equal to or greater than the annual rate of market remuneration (as prescribed by the migration rules) and the reduced TSMIT (equivalent to 90% of the TSMIT). For more information on the three types of concessions available, please visit the Immigration SA website.

To be considered, an employer must prove a compelling case of a foreign worker`s employment, on the basis of which each DAMA is a specific agreement between a territory and the Australian government and it is therefore important to understand how DAMA works for a given area. If the employer`s confirmation request is successful, Immigration SA has issued it with a confirmation letter which can then be used by the employer to apply for a DAMA employment contract from the Ministry of the Interior (the Ministry).
