Regional Occupation List (ROL) Australia

Australia's new Regional Occupation List or ROL is available for key skilled migration visa programs via which an applicant gets nominated for the positions that are available in Regional parts of Australia.

Australia's Regional Occupation List contains total 77 skilled occupations that are determined by the DoE (Department of Employment)  and is prescribed in Legislative Instrument LIN 19/051.

In order to respond to Australian labor market needs and regional changes, the Regional Occupations List (ROL) Australia is regularly reviewed and revised by the Department of Jobs and Small Business.

This ROL is relevant to those individuals who:

Are nominated by a State or Territory government agency and have obtained their invitation to apply on or after 11th December 2019 to lodge Subclass 491 (Skilled Work Regional (Provisional) visa application.

The following visas are available to candidates who are eligible to work in an Australia's skilled occupation and can meet other eligibility requirements:

  • Skilled Work Regional (Provisional) visa (subclass 491)
  • Skilled Employer Sponsored Regional (provisional) visa (subclass 494)
  • Training visa (subclass 407)
  • Temporary Skill Shortage (TSS) visa (subclass 482)

A combined ROL Australia list specifies:

  • the ANZSCO code, i.e. Australian and New Zealand Standard Classification of Occupations code for all the occupations. The ANZSCO code provides information about the skill level, qualifications and experience required to work in any particular occupation.
  • Caveats, excluding the occupation in a few situations (it is applicable to the TSS and ENS visas only)
  • Whether the occupation is mentioned in the Medium and Long-term Strategic Skills List, Short-term Skilled Occupation List and the Regional Occupation List or not
  • The assessing authority that performs skills assessments for nominated occupation

On 11 March 2019, the skilled migration occupation lists of Australia were updated in order to respond to the labour market needs and to prioritize help Australian workers for jobs and to allow business access to the vital skills.

All the prices are listed in AUD and are supposed to be paid while lodging the application:

Applicants Fees
Primary applicant $2,400
Additional applicants over 18 years of age $2,400 (each)
Additional applicants under 18 years of age $615 (each)
