As we get closer to the end of this financial year, it's about time to wrap up how migration panned out this FY and what to expect in the 2024-25 FY. Migration planning level 2024-25 and visa allocation is on the horizon, it is incumbent that we predict and prepare for upcoming invitation rounds.

State and Regional Sponsorship & DAMA

Once you attain a positive skills assessment, depending on tour occupation group, along with skilled independent visa subclass (subclass 189), you may also be eligible to apply for State Sponsorship (subclass 190). You can lodge expression to apply for PR through both these subclasses simultaneously.

We recommend you to lodge your expression to apply for PR at your earliest convenience, as you'd be ahead on queue. You can work on your points and update your application in the future.

Quotas for most states are almost exhausted; we are still expecting few small invitation rounds across different states; with NSW having a relatively higher chance of a larger invitation round as more than 30% allocation are yet to be filled.

Do note that different states have different occupation lists with varied eligibility criteria. It is incumbent for you to know the criteria before considering your plausible options. You can book a Zoom PR Pathway consultation with our Registered Migration Agent (MARN1572961) via this link:

DAMA (Designated Area Regional Migration)

A Designated Area Migration Agreement (DAMA) is a formal agreement between the Australian Government and a regional, state or territory authority. It provides access to more overseas workers than the standard skilled migration program. DAMAs operate under an agreement-based framework, providing flexibility for regions to respond to their unique economic and labour market conditions.


For a DAMA generally the age limit is pushed up to 55 years old for jobs of skill categories 1-4 and 50 years old for category 5.
