Great South Coast DAMA


Request for Endorsement

Businesses must apply to the Designated Area Representative (DAR) for endorsement. The Request for Endorsement Form needs to be completed and submitted with the supporting documentation listed in the Form.

We encourage all busineses to discuss the documentation required with the DAR before submitting.

A Guide to completing the Request for Endorsement Form is included with the downloadable Form.

You should provide all documentation listed to ensure you are submitting a complete request for assessment.

While we may ask you to provide more information in order to determine whether your nomination meets the criteria for assessment approval, a decision on the assessment may be made solely on the information provided at the time of application.

If further documentation is requested, a specified period will be given in which to receive the documents. After this time all documents will be returned.

Subsequent year endorsement process

Endorsement to access the Great South Coast Designated Area Migration Agreement (GSC DAMA) is for up to five years, however initial allocation of occupation types and number of vacancies are for the first year only. Businesses seeking to access new overseas workers will need to apply to the GSC DAMA Designated Area Representative each subsequent year for endorsement for further occupations, worker nominations or other variations to their labour agreement.

Documents required for additional numbers, concessions and occupations in subsequent years

Your business needs to apply to the GSC DAMA Designated Area Representative for subsequent year endorsement. Fill the ‘Request for Endorsement Subsequent Year – Deed of Variation’ form and submit with the supporting documentation in the checklist.
