Immigration SA



The South Australian Government is very active in boosting skilled and business migration to the state.


The State Government of South Australia’s agency which promotes migration to South Australia is called Immigration SA. Immigration SA is part of the Government of South Australia Department for Manufacturing, Innovation, Trade, Resources and Energy.


Immigration SA is responsible for the State's participation in the skilled migration program and provides nominations under the State-nominated visa programs to eligible candidates. Immigration SA is not involved in the assessing or granting of visas.

Immigration SA provides:


  • nomination of skilled migrants to meet critical skills shortages in the local labour market;
  • nomination of migrants with a proven record of business expertise and entrepreneurship who can inject significant new money to the South Australian economy and create new jobs, and;
  • advice to DIAC on positions for South Australian employers seeking skilled labour from overseas when these positions cannot be filled from the current local labour pool.

State Specific and Regional Migration (SSRM) initiatives


The Australian Government, in consultation with State and Territory Governments and regional development authorities introduced a range of State Specific and Regional Migration (SSRM) initiatives which can be broadly split into three program areas:

  • State nominated general skilled migration program
  • Business innovation and investment program
  • Employer sponsored (regional Sponsored Migration Scheme). Immigration SA is the only Regional Certifying Body (RCB) for the Regional Sponsored Migration Scheme (RSMS) in South Australia.
