Perth to be Reclassified as a “Regional City” of Australia for Immigration Purposes

In an attempt to address the skilled labour shortage in Perth, the Federal Government has announced that Perth will be considered a “regional city” of Australia.

The reclassification will path the way for Perth to be included in the regional sponsored migration scheme which will enable Perth businesses to sponsor foreign workers under the comparatively more relaxed criteria for permanent and temporary migration.
