Property agents, Call centre workers even actors can now move to Australia for Good. Here’s how,

Aspiring Australians have been given a new way to realise their dreams — but there’s a catch

Migrants need to commit to life in regional Australia for at least three years, according to the rules of new visas launched this week.

But if they can become part of a regional community, it opens to the door to permanent residency for overseas workers from a wider range of occupations than before — including real estate agents, call centre managers, actors, historians and even kennel hands.

Citizenship is generally available to migrants after four years on a permanent visa.

Key points:

  • New regional visas have launched this week, giving migrants in more occupations a chance to stay in Australia
  • Previous attempts to convince migrants to stay in regions have struggled for success
  • NSW is not ready to roll out the points-based visa and critics argue salary rules are too tough

Immigration Minister David Coleman said Sydney, Melbourne and Brisbane were suffering significant population pressures, while smaller cities and regional areas were desperate for more skilled workers.

“By requiring migrants to live and work in regional areas for three years before they can get permanent residency, we are encouraging them to put down roots and settle in these areas long term,” he said.

“That is what our smaller cities and regional communities need.”

Small-town life

For some, like animal health researcher and recent migrant Forough Ataollahi, small-town living is not a problem.

“My friend kept saying you will get bored in Wagga because there’s nowhere to go, none of the activities to do,” she said.

“But when I got here, I fell in love with Wagga.”

Although Ms Ataollahi has settled and is looking to buy a house, Professor James Raymer argues she is an exception.

Migrants in a regional or remote area have a “very low chance” of staying in that area, he said, and this pattern has been “very consistent over time”.

Professor Raymer has led a team of Australian National University researchers to collect and refine almost 40 years of localised immigration data.

“Most migrants will leave [a region] within a five-year period — over half, if not 70 per cent — and if they’re going to stay in Australia they’re going to go to one of the big cities, probably Sydney or Melbourne,” he said.

“What we actually see in the data, the chances of them leaving remote and regional areas has been increasing for a lot of the newer migrant groups.”

New laws will give these new regional visa holders similar access to welfare and government services as permanent visa holders.

Together with the incentive of permanent residency, the Government hopes it can convince migrants to stay — even after they secure permanent residency and geographic restrictions no longer apply.

Shaun Duffy, who runs Great Southern Electrical in Wagga, has found the migrant workers he has recruited often end up in the major centres, particularly the younger ones.

“Because we require technically trained people, it’s quite difficult to get university-trained people or even vocationally trained people to stay in regional areas,” he said.

“Infrastructure and services are the biggest things, particularly for people that are a little bit older, that are looking at raising a family here.”

Rachel Whiting, chief executive of the Riverina Regional Development Australia office, said people generally want to go where there are better facilities.

“We try to encourage business to be really clear about what’s in their location and assist migrants like they would any new employee to find their place and support them in resettlement.”

Rollout concerns

Some have identified hiccups in the rollout of the new visas.

The Northern Inland NSW branch of Regional Development Australia (RDA) — one of the country’s many regional visa certifying bodies — revealed last week that the NSW Government has delayed commencement of nominations for the new points-based regional visa “until early 2020”.

The Riverina RDA also confirmed it had not been given permission to launch in line with the availability of the new visas.

A spokesperson for NSW Treasury said “the NSW Government is carefully considering the nomination process for this new visa” and they will provide an update “at the appropriate time”.

Even if migrants make it through three years in a regional town, another hurdle looms when it comes time to apply for a permanent visa.

The Migration Institute of Australia has criticised the decision to require regional-based migrants to earn $53,900 a year in order to qualify for permanent residency.

“While the Government is telling regional Australia it is listening to concerns about skills shortages, they are going to make it as hard as possible to fill them,” institute president John Hourigan said.

“The requirement to earn this level of income for three years is not reasonable given the already suppressed nature of rural economies struggling with drought and diminishing investment.”

But it’s clear there are tens of thousands of migrants that are up for the challenge.

Riverina RDA reported 600 expressions of interest in the new visas when applications opened in July.

There will likely be 25,000 regional visas granted during 2019-20, up by around 15,000 on 2018-19, mostly at the expense of independent points-based visas without geographic requirements.

Ms Ataollahi encouraged other migrants to give regional Australia a try — and some experiences, like fishing, have provided a pleasant surprise.

“We didn’t have this sort of opportunity in Iran, because we are living in a desert area of Iran … It was fun.”
