DIAC will send personnel to the Barossa Valley to explain visa sponsorship options to regional employers.

Australian immigration personnel have launched a region-specific campaign in South Australia's Barossa Valley to explain the benefits of sponsoring skilled workers from overseas as a solution to skills shortages in the wine-growing region.

"Some businesses in regional communities can find it difficult to source local skilled workers and may want to consider sponsoring suitably qualified workers from overseas," a DIAC spokesperson said in a departmental statement released today.

The department has made a South Australian Industry and Regional Outreach Officer available on November 3 for individual meetings and will answer any citizenship and Australia visa queries.

"Our officer will be available to provide a range of information on market salary rates, health insurance, training requirements and employer obligations.

"The department’s regional visits program means people in communities outside capital cities can talk directly with an immigration officer about any specific issues they might face," the spokesperson said.


Australian Visa Bureau is an independent migration consultancy that specialises in helping people lodge applications with the Australian High Commission.
