187 RSMS VISA – WORK IN REGIONAL AUSTRALIA
The subclass 187 visa was part of the Regional Sponsored Migration Scheme (RSMS). The 187 visa allowed Australian employers to sponsor foreign employees to live and work in regional Australia permanently. Areas outside of the Gold Coast, Brisbane, Newcastle, Sydney, Wollongong and Melbourne are classified as regional in respect to the 187 visa scheme. The RSMS 187 visa was a great pathway to permanent residency in Australia.
Note: The 187 RSMS Scheme was closed to new direct entry applicants on 16 November 2019. This visa was subsequently replaced by a subsequent skilled regional visa program, please contact us if you want more information about the current regional skilled migration.
