provisions for non-points tested visa to be included in the State/Territory Nominated Independent (STNI) Visa Scheme.
An additional extract goes on to say “The STNI could include a provision of a temporary visa where a skill is in demand within a particular state or territory but is not on the SOL. This circumstance can arise very quickly with major resource development projects or with the adoption of new technology. A temporary visa would be granted for the specific project and an application for a permanent visa could be made after meeting occupancy and employment milestones”

With employment growing at record rates in WA, the state has the lowest average unemployment rate of any of the Australian states (4.7 per cent).
Mr Carpenter told parliament that “we would have to double our skilled migration program if we relied on the Howard Government’s existing migration policy to fill the current vacancies”
