The Department of Jobs, Precincts and Regions (DJPR) has launched a new campaign to encourage skilled migrants to remain living and working in Victoria.
The campaign highlights the Victorian Government’s visa nomination program, which offers a pathway to permanent residency.
The program is aimed at professionals already living and working in Victoria.
Psychiatrists and mental health nurses working in Victoria on temporary visas are among those eligible to apply.
The campaign targets skilled migrants in the mental health, medical research, life science and health sectors, who are supporting Victoria’s coronavirus health response and economic recovery.

Mental Health Reform Victoria (MHRV) is working to implement the interim recommendations of the Royal Commission into Victoria’s Mental Health System.
This includes a range of reforms to expand and better support the mental health workforce.
The Victorian nominated visa campaign complements MHRV’s recruitment initiatives.
