Great News – Perth and Gold Coast to be classified as REGIONAL

Skilled migrants are now being encouraged to move to Perth and the Gold Coast as the Federal Government grapples with congestion in Australia’s three biggest cities.

Key points:
Perth and Gold Coast have asked to be named regional areas to attract more skilled workers
Almost 70 per cent of population growth is concentrated in Sydney, Melbourne and Brisbane
Migrants who opt to move to regional areas will go to the top of the list for a regional visa
For the first time, the two destinations will be added to the list of locations migrants can move to on a regional visa.

Immigration Minister David Coleman denied it was a backflip, despite earlier this month insisting the cities would not be included in the program – https://www.abc.net.au/…/skilled-migrants-to-perth…/11643316
