Tasmania Announces New Skills in Demand Lists
The Tasmanian State Government offers a range of sponsorships for skilled and business migrants and have now added additional occupations to their skills in demand list.
If you have a skill which is 'in demand' in Tasmania the State Government can sponsor you to migrate 'independently' to Australia. To be eligible for sponsorship your occupation must be on the current 'skills in demand list' and you must demonstrate your commitment to live and work in Tasmania for at least 2 years.
Tasmania is currently one of the fastest growing economies within Australia with growth of 7.2 per cent from June 2007 to June 2008.
The State's strong fiscal position and planned infrastructure spending will support continued growth and maintain employment.
