Goldfields DAMA Information Session

Goldfields DAMA Information Session

Goldfields DAMA Information Session The Department of Home Affairs will be holding a briefing session for Goldfields businesses wanting to find out more about the Goldfields Designated Area Migration Agreement (DAMA) in Kalgoorlie-Boulder at 4pm on Friday 5 April 2019.
 
The information session will be held at the City of Kalgoorlie-Boulder Administration Building, 577 Hannan Street, and will allow local businesses to hear directly from the Department of Home Affairs regarding how their company may benefit from the DAMA.
 
City of Kalgoorlie-Boulder CEO John Walker said this would be the first in a series of information sessions hosted by the Department of Home Affairs to ensure that all stakeholders had a clear understanding of how the Goldfields DAMA would work and how it would be implemented across the region.
 
“This is a very new process for all of us, so the information session is a great opportunity for businesses to meet representatives from the Department of Home Affairs, ask their questions and get a good clear understanding of what the DAMA entails,” he said.
 
“Part of the session will be about understanding the endorsement process and the requirements businesses will have to meet before they can lodge an application.”
 
All employers will be required to submit their Goldfields DAMA applications to the City of Kalgoorlie-Boulder for endorsement.  The City expects to start processing applications by July 2019. A maximum of 500 applications will be endorsed in the first twelve months.
