The RSMS has only one visa – Subclass 187 Visa. The subclass has three streams:

  •      Temporary Residence Transition
  •      Direct Entry and
  •      Agreement.


  • The Temporary Residence Transition stream is for 457 visa holders who have worked for their employer for at least the last 2 years and the employer wants to offer them a permanent position in that same occupation
  • The Direct Entry stream is for persons who are untested in the Australian labour market and are applying for an RSMS visa from outside Australia or are applying from inside Australia but are not eligible for the Temporary Residence Transition stream
  • The Agreement stream is for persons who are being sponsored by an employer through a tailored and negotiated labour agreement or regional migration agreement.

RSMS Subclass 187 Visa Requirements Main Criteria

The main criteria for this visa are:

  • There is a 2 year contract between the employer and the employee, which will commence within 6 months of the visa being granted, and for a minimum of 2 years.
  • The applicant has a minimum of a Diploma level qualification.
  • The applicant has is under the age of 50 years.
  • The applicant has a minimum of competent English, and their spouse and any dependents over the age of 18 years has functional English.
  • Some occupations will require a Skills Assessment.

RSMS Subclass 187 Full Application Process 

The application for an RSMS Visa consists of 3 steps:

Step 1 – Regional Advice

Step 2 – Nomination

Step 3 – Visa Application

Step 1 – Regional Advice 

The advice from the Regional Certifying Body (RCB) is vital to this application. It allows the RCB to confirm that this position is difficult to fill in the local labor market and that the salary it will attract is comparable to other salaries being earned in the area. In South Australia, there is only one RCB.

Step 2 – Nomination 

Once Regional Advice has been given, Migration Pathways will lodge your Nomination with The Department of Immigration and Border Protection (DIBP).  At this stage, no further information is required to lodge the nomination, unless it is specifically required by DIBP.

Step 3 – Visa Application 

Your visa application to DIBP can be lodged at the same time as the Nomination (Stage 2), or once the Nomination has been approved.

The visa applicant is assessed, by DIBP, against base criteria. In addition, you will also be required to provide results of full medical examinations and police clearances.

Conditions and obligations for holders of RSMS Visa subclass 187

This information explains what are the conditions attached with your RSMS Visa Subclass 187 visa after you are granted a permanent Regional Sponsored Migration Scheme visa (subclass 187). If the visa is granted while your stay in another country, you and your dependent members must enter Australia within six months of the visa being granted, or your visa will be canceled. You must work for 2 years in the regional area.

RSMS Visa Cancellation

The department may cancel this visa if you do not make a genuine effort to begin employment with your Regional Sponsored Migration Scheme sponsor within six months of:

your first entry to Australia if you were granted this visa while you were outside of Australia, or

the visa being granted if you were granted this visa while you were in Australia

The department may also seek to cancel this visa if you begin employment but do not remain in the position for the full two years.

If this happens, you will have a chance to explain, in writing, why your visa should not be canceled.
