Regional Sponsored Migration Scheme Visa (subclass 187)

Regional Sponsored Migration Scheme Visa (subclass 187) Consultants Brisbane

This visa is a permanent residence visa for skilled workers who want to work in regional Australia. It allows you to work in Australia under one of two streams

Temporary Residence Transition (TRT) stream 187 Visa

You may be eligible under this stream if you are the holder of a Temporary Skill Shortage (TSS) visa (subclass 482) or a Temporary Work (Skilled) visa (subclass 457) (not granted under labour agreement arrangements) or a related associated Bridging visa and you have worked for your employer for at least:
  • Three out of the previous four years (before the nomination is made) in the same position that they have nominated you for or
  • Two out of the previous three years before the nomination is made, if transitional arrangements apply because you either held, or were an applicant for, a subclass 457 visa (which was subsequently granted) on 18 April 2017.

187 Visa Direct Entry (DE) stream

If you do not meet the requirements under the TRT stream (for example, because you have never, or only briefly worked in Australia), this stream may then be available if your employer still wishes to sponsor you for permanent residence.

  • Have been nominated by an Australian employer in regional Australia and this nomination has been approved within six months before you apply –
