DIAC officers continue to visit rural Australia
Officers from the Department of Immigration and Citizenship (DIAC) continue to visit regional parts of Australia so that more people can have access to information about Australian immigration.
The next region to have access to Australian immigration information will be Port Augusta, in South Australia, on Wednesday 18 March.
The purpose of the initiative is to bring DIAC's services such as Australian visa and citizenship processing to areas lacking access to it, and to provide on-hand information about hiring foreign skilled workers and sponsoring people to move to Australia.
Officers will also be available for appointment for people needing citizenship testing.
The latest round of DIAC's tour has reached many parts of Australia already, including Kalgoorlie, Central West New South Wales, Wollongong, Central Queensland, and Mount Gambier.
The Australian Visa Bureau is an independent consulting company specialising in helping people with emigrating to Australia.
