Employers can use the Skilled Employer Sponsored Regional (SESR) visa to attract skilled migrants.
The scheme helps employers fill vacancies where there is a shortage of local skilled workers. You can sponsor skilled migrants living overseas or temporary residents currently working in South Australia.
All of South Australia falls within the scope of the scheme, including Adelaide.
The role of an RCB is to provide advice to the Department of Home Affairs on SESR nomination applications for the Employer Sponsored stream. Immigration SA is the RCB for all South Australian SESR nominations under the Employer Sponsored stream. See the RCB application process page for more information.
Employer nominations must be considered by an RCB located in the same state where the nominated position exists.
