Designated Area Migration Agreement

Designated Area Migration Agreement

The Western Australian Goldfields is the first region in Western Australia to establish a Designated Area Migration Agreement (DAMA).

The DAMA allows Goldfields employers to sponsor skilled and semi skilled overseas workers for positions they are unable to fill with local workers. The Goldfields DAMA has been tailored to address current and emerging labour market shortages in our region with local terms and conditions of employment.

Skilled migrants are critical to supplementing the local Goldfields workforce during periods of skills shortages.  

The City is accepting the Goldfields DAMA endorsement application now. Before a business submits an application we strongly recommend you follow the sponsor's checklist which can be found under apply now.
