NEW FIVE YEAR MIGRATION AGREEMENT SET TO HELP BOOST NT POPULATION

The flow of skilled migrants to the Northern Territory will continue, with the signing of a new five year bilateral agreement to help employers fill skills shortages.

The Federal Government and Northern Territory Government will this week sign a new five year Designated Area Migration Agreement (DAMA), ahead of the expiration of the first, groundbreaking DAMA between the two jurisdictions on December 31.

The current DAMA between the Federal and NT Governments was the first in Australia where a broader range of shortage occupations was available than those identified in standard skilled migration programs.
