New regional migration agreements for the Northern Territory and south-west Victoria will lower the criteria for skills, language and income for migrant workers.
The Northern Territory Government confirmed that new agreement includes a wider range of occupations — 117 in total, compared to 111 currently listed — together with tweaks to English and salary concessions and the offer of permanent residency.
However the Government is demanding migrants commit to living in these regions for at least three years before a permanent residency pathway is available.
