Migration Newsflash: Enterprise Migration Agreements 

The Minister for Immigration and Citizenship, Chris Bowen MP, has confirmed the introduction of Enterprise Migration Agreements (EMAs) to assist in filling skill shortages in the resources sector. The scheme has now opened for eligible businesses to apply.

Key insights

  • The aim of the EMA program is to provide major resource projects with the required workforce in identified areas of labour shortage.
  • The EMA will be negotiated with either the project owner or the prime contractor responsible for day-to-day oversight of the resource project.
  • Once approved, the EMA remains in effect for 5 years.
