RSMS Agent – Regional Sponsored Migration Scheme (187 visa)
The Regional Sponsored Migration Scheme Visa (RSMS – 187 visa) is designed to respond to the needs of Australian employers. The sponsoring business must be located in any area of Australia outside Brisbane, the Gold Coast, Sydney, Newcastle, Wollongong and Melbourne. Employers can recruit and nominate skilled people to fill positions that cannot be filled from the Australian labour market or through their own staff training.
The Department of Immigration is responsible for all decisions made on visa applications. Immigration Downunder is a private entity comprised of highly experienced MARA registered migration consultants. Immigration Downunder is not affiliated with the Department of Immigration and provides fee-based services to assist and represent our clients through the complex visa application process. We act independently of the Australian Government and in the best interest of our clients.
The Regional Sponsored Migration Scheme Visa (RSMS – 187 visa) is similar to the Employer Nomination Scheme (ENS – 186 visa) but is designed to benefit employers in regional and low population growth areas of Australia.
The Regional Sponsored Migration Scheme Visa (RSMS – 187 visa) may be applied for inside or outside Australia and all applicants must meet health and character criteria. Certain work visa applicants will also need to meet the English language requirement.
The Regional Sponsored Migration Scheme Visa (RSMS – 187 visa) has three steams under which an applicant can apply:
a. The Temporary Residence Transition stream is for applicants who have held a subclass 457 visa and worked for the sponsoring employer for at least 2 years;
b. The Direct Entry stream is for applicants who have not held a subclass 457 visa for 2 years;
c. The Agreement stream is for applicants whose employers wish to sponsor them through a Labour Agreement or Regional Migration Agreement.

Labour Agreements are formal arrangements between an employer and the Commonwealth which allows for the recruitment of an agreed number of overseas skilled workers.
A Regional Migration Agreement is an agreement between the Australian Government and a state or territory government, local council, or another local stakeholder. The program will facilitate increased labour flows to regional areas experiencing acute labour shortages, in particular, regions that are isolated from large populations and do not have Australian skills and labour available.
Regional Migration Agreements will specify the occupations, numbers and visa requirements for the sponsorship of workers from outside Australia to certain regional locations.
