Department of Immigration and Citizenship (DIAC) officers will visit Port Pirie on February 23 to provide businesses and overseas workers with information on employer-sponsored visa options.
Two South Australian regional outreach officers will be available for individual appointments with regional employers and employees to answer a range of questions about skilled migration.
“Some businesses in regional communities can find it difficult to fill skilled vacancies with local workers and may want to consider sponsoring suitably qualified workers from overseas,” a departmental spokesman said.
“Our officers will be available to provide a range of information on visa options, market salary rates, health insurance, training requirements and employer obligations.
“The department’s regional outreach program enables people in communities outside capital cities to talk directly with an immigration officer about any specific issues they might face.”
Individual appointments will be available at Regional Development Australia Yorke and Mid North, 85 Ellen Street, Port Pirie, from 10am-5pm.
To book an appointment, contact Mr Jan Schmortte, industry and regional outreach officer, on 0434 076 437 or email email@example.com or Ms Amanda Johnson, regional outreach officer on 0478 305 429 or firstname.lastname@example.org.
