Regional certifying bodies


When you nominate someone for a Regional Sponsored Migration Scheme Direct Entry visa stream, the position you nominate them for must be assessed by a regional certifying body. Regional certifying body assessments give us information about local labour market conditions and other relevant regional matters.
