SKILLED EMPLOYER SPONSORED REGIONAL (PROVISIONAL) VISA – EMPLOYER SPONSORED STREAM (SESR) Subclass 494 Visa

The Skilled Employer Sponsored Regional (Provisional) visa (subclass 494) – Employer Sponsored stream (SESR) is a visa program that allows employers in regional and low population growth areas of Australia to sponsor workers from overseas in order to fill skilled vacancies that cannot otherwise be filled. This is an important option for employers who cannot find the skilled workers they need locally (we require evidence that a genuine attempt to do so be supplied, along with other supporting documents about the nominating employer and their genuine need for the suitable skilled position).

 RDA FSC is the RCB for employer nominations for the region which encompasses the three Local Government Areas of Shoalhaven, Eurobodalla and Bega Valley.

SESR covers all of Australia except Brisbane, Sydney and Melbourne.
