Designated Area Migration Agreement

Applications for the Pilbara Designated Area Migration Agreement (DAMA) are open. 

The City of Karratha is proud to have spearheaded a partnership with the Town of Port Hedland and Regional Development Australia Pilbara (RDA Pilbara) to bring a DAMA to the region. 

Approved by the Federal Immigration Minister the Honourable Alex Hawke on 30 March 2022, the Pilbara DAMA is one of the ways in which the City is supporting local business to attract and retain skilled workers in our region.  To find out more, including how to apply, eligible occupations, available concessions and FAQs, please visit RDA Pilbara's DAMA website.
