This week’s new episode of The Migration Show features very interesting details about the proposal of the NSW Orana region for a new DAMA agreement and much more.

In addition to the usual DAMA elements of an expanded occupation list, the Orana proposal also seeks to expand the required residence period in regional areas for subclass 187 and 489 regional sponsored visas to 5 years and eliminate the SAF fee for businesses with a turnover less than $10 million in areas where there is a demonstrated skill shortage.
