Tasmania SIR

Tasmania's position on the SIR visa

Settling in Tasmania

Skilled Independent Regional (SIR) Visa

Tasmania, Australia’s island state, offers a wide range of employment opportunities for skilled migrants, as well as affordable housing and an excellent lifestyle. The state’s economy has grown and developed rapidly in recent years and skills shortages have emerged in a number of professions and trades.

The Department of Economic Development encourages migrants who qualify for the SIR visa and would like to settle anywhere in Tasmania to apply for state sponsorship.

Applicants with skills in demand within Tasmania will be given preference, although people with other occupations will be considered if they can demonstrate they are able to easily settle and secure skilled employment, or start a business.

All applicants must meet all basic skilled visa requirements.

Sponsorship applications will be assessed against the following criteria:
  • Skill - Is your occupation (or your spouse’s) in demand in Tasmania?
  • Employment - Do you have a full time job offer related to your occupation from a Tasmanian employer?
  • English - You should have an IELTS score of at least 5 across all bands. For some occupations a higher level of English will be required.
  • Assets - How much money (excluding relocation costs) will you bring with you when you settle? Main applicants should have at least AUD $20,000 in transferable assets, with AUD $10,000 for each additional dependent family member.
  • Demonstrated links to Tasmania - such as family or friends, existing business networks and/or previous visits to the state.
The list of occupations approved by Tasmania for the SIR is available in the registered clients area.
