NT DAMA II Occupation List: Australia Permanent Residency
Michael Gunner, the Chief Minister of Northern Territory, said the addition of the pathway to Australia permanent residency in DAMA II gave skilled migrants a big incentive to move to NT and stay for a long-term.
“The Labor Government of NT fought hard for a pathway to Australia permanent residency inclusion in this new five-year agreement, which will significantly increase the number of skilled migrants moving to the Territory.
NT has been a key contributor to the economic & population growth and social diversity in the country. It has a proud history for overseas nationals’ immigration.
