The Australian Government is trying every possible effort to increase the number of immigrants in regional areas. There is requirement of skilled workers in the regional areas to fill the job vacancies and ease the pressure on the major cities.
As per the data released by the Federal Government, 1 in 5 migrants who came to Australia between 2006 and 2011 chose to settle in the regional areas. However, Australia is still struggling to settle more migrants in the regional areas.
City VS Regions
Australia is most urbanized countries in the world with 67% of its population residing in the big cities. There are more migrants in urban areas than non-migrants, as per The Conversation. The two most important aspects of attracting migrants to regional areas are attraction and retention.
Thus, to attract skilled migrants to regional areas, two new visa categories will come into effect from November this year namely Skilled Employer Sponsored Regional Provisional Visa and Skilled Work Regional Provisional Visa.
The points that attract the retention of migrants in the regional areas are:
A survey was conducted on 915 skilled immigrants settled in the regional areas. The result states that 2/3RD of them liked their job and out of every second person out of three felt welcomed by the local community.
Most of them were also found to be happy with the surroundings like schools, medical services and entertainment options.
Regional areas for refugees:
The Australian government decided the primary location for refugees to settle in the country. There are many regional areas for refugees to settle:
The survey was conducted on 111 refugees who said that they found Australia to be safe. They felt that the locals were friendly towards them and their children had good future prospects in Australia.
The survey also found that most refugees had experience of running their own business before moving to Australia. Programs like ‘Ignite Small Business Startups’ helps refugees to build their own business.

This is in regard to my journey with Aptechvisa Services. I have experienced here were so far better and I already recommended my multiple friends to them because I can trust their words.

This is a time to appreciate the performance of Aptech visa. True, Genuine, professional and what not, this is the immigration consultancy to whom we can trust blindly. Due to my age factor I did not score well but more than 400 and this made myself eligible for Ontario and my consultant worked hard in my profile and made it true.
Hope you all are reading my message with Great Spirit. I would rate Aptech 10 out of 10. In between of my application, I have faced a lot of issues in arranging documents but everything went well and there was a continuous support of Aptech which motivated me everything and today I am in Canada, Ontario. Thank you Aptech
Aptech is the best immigration consultant and the staff is of very friendly nature. Since I was there in US, so it was very difficult for me to coordinate with them but they always answered my queries very promptly and meantime, my father was there every time to support me. With the help of Aptech and my father, we got our PR visa for Canada. I am feeling so lucky to be associated with Aptech.
Here we would like to Thank you Aptech visa for all the assistance and help which we have received in our Canada PR visa application throughout the process. They helped me a lot in every manner and it would be an honor if I would say something good about Aptech visa. You guys are really hard working.
Mine was the wonderful journey with Aptech throughout the process. I enjoyed working with them and I would really recommend Aptech to all of you. I have also given a lot of references and in future also will try to refer Aptech to all my known and relatives.
My son has applied for PR visa through Aptech and then he decided to apply for my tourist visa from Aptech only and you can’t believe that I got my visa within 24 hours after applying for the online application. I would really appreciate the work out done by Aptech Global in our applications. Keep working hard guys.
Due to some corrections in my passport, it took more time for me to get the visa but Aptech handled all the things very precisely and smartly. They keep on coordinating with High Commission for my application and did all the conversation on time. Thank you for supporting me.
