Skilled Migrant Job Connect Subsidy for skilled migrants in Western Australia

Skilled Migrant Job Connect Subsidy

The Government of Western Australia has introduced the Skilled Migrant Job Connect Subsidy program, now available through the Migration WA Portal. This initiative is designed to provide financial assistance to skilled migrants, helping them align their overseas qualifications, skills, and experience with local job market requirements.


What is the Skilled Migrant Job Connect Subsidy?

The Skilled Migrant Job Connect Subsidy program (the Subsidy) offers reimbursements of up to $7,500 for onshore migrants. This financial aid can cover costs associated with:

  • Skills assessments: Ensuring overseas qualifications are recognised in Western Australia.
  • Gap training: Bridging gaps in skills to meet local industry standards.
  • Occupational licensing: Obtaining necessary licenses to practice professions in WA.


How to apply

Migrants can access the Subsidy through the Migration WA Portal. The portal allows users to:

  • Submit a Subsidy registration.
  • Make claim requests.
  • Upload supporting documents.

The save-as-you-go feature ensures applications can be completed at a convenient pace, guided by easy-to-follow prompts.


Benefits of the Skilled Migrant Job Connect Subsidy

This program offers significant advantages for migrants aiming to establish their careers in Western Australia. By offsetting the costs of essential certifications and training, it enhances employment opportunities that match their skills and experience.
