Immigration SA

Immigration SA is the key State Government agency in South Australia that drives and coordinates the State's international migration program.
Activities mainly centre around the State's skilled migration and business migration programs.
The Commonwealth Department of Immigration and Citizenship (DIAC) is a government department that acts for the whole nation.
However, to provide states/territories with the opportunity to attract more skilled and business migrants, DIAC has introduced a number of state-specific migration schemes. These include:
    * Regional Sponsored Migration Scheme (RSMS)
    * State Skilled Sponsored Visas
    * Business Skills Visas

Immigration SA can provide sponsorships under the State-sponsored schemes to suitably qualified candidates. Please note that Immigration SA is not involved in the assessing or granting of visas.  The responsibility for setting migration criteria, assessing and granting of visas rests with DIAC. Visa applications under State Sponsorships are given priority processing by DIAC.
