The Regional Skilled Migration Scheme visa allows immigration once you have lived in this country for 3 years and worked for an employer on the 457 visas or the TSS visa. The employer must be from regional Australia. If the employer still wishes to retain you after 3 years, you can get permanent immigration. The employer needs to choose you and nominate you for the visa. Within 6 months of getting the nomination, the employee can apply for the 187 visas. The nominated applicants should be less than 45 years in age. This requirement is waived off for doctors who have worked for 2 out of 3 years in regional Australia. Their nomination has also happened for a position in Regional Australia.
