Far North Queensland DAMA

Far North Queensland DAMA

 

As previously announced the Far North Queensland DAMA is now in operation. This DAMA features:

  • 70 occupations for employer sponsorship, including three non-ANZSCO occupations
  • pathways to permanent residency for holders of TSS visas granted under the FNQ DAMA in select occupations
  • a broad range of occupations that reflect FNQ skilled and semi-skilled shortages, with no caveats to apply
  • English language concessions for some occupations
  • salary concessions that reflect FNQ market rates, ensuring that worker terms and conditions of employment are not eroded
  • concessions relating to qualifications and experience for some occupations
  • a range of risk and integrity actions to ensure that the rights of both employees and employers are protected
  • a five-year agreement to reduce red tape.
