Regional Migration and Recruitment Opportunities for The Central Coast, New South Wales


Regional Migration Policy 

Recent changes to the classification of regional areas have opened up a number of opportunities for Central Coast businesses to nominate skilled and semi-skilled professionals.

New Visa Pathways 

In November 2019, the Department of Home Affairs launched two new visa subclasses; 

  • Skilled Employer Sponsored Regional (Provisional) Visa 
  • Skilled Work Regional (Provisional) Visa 

Both Visa subclasses have been designed to open up more opportunities for various states and regional businesses to engage with and recruit overseas professionals. 

For businesses in the Central Coast, the most appropriate visa pathway to provide overseas skilled professionals is the Skilled Employer Sponsored Regional (Provisional) Visa.
