A new Designated Area Migration Agreement (DAMA) has been signed for the Far North Queensland (FNQ) region. This covers the Cassowary Coast, the Tablelands, Mareeba, Cairns and the Douglas Shire and is administrated by the Cairns Chamber of Commerce. Applications for endorsement by the Designated Area Representative (DAR) are now open.
The DAMAs offer a pathway to permanent residence via the TSS program for eligible visa applicants, concessions for some applicants and can provide the ability for eligible businesses to access occupations not listed in ANZSCO.

Further details of the FNQ DAMA can be found at www.cairnschamber.com.au/fnq-dama.
