Skilled Occupation List Australia 2020


 

The Skilled occupation list Australia (SOL) plays a major role in Australia immigration and permanent residency process. As part of the immigration process, applicants applying for a Skilled visa in Australia need to select and nominate an occupation from the appropriate skilled occupation list of Australia. However, an applicant must have skills and experience in accordance with the occupation he has nominated.

Every year, the Australian government released the renewed SOL List of Australia. Earlier, there were two main occupation lists, i.e. SOL and CSOL, which government removed last year and introduced two relatively new occupation lists in place of these lists, i.e. Medium and long-term Strategic Skills List (MLTSSL) and the Short-term Skilled Occupation List (STSOL).

 

Combined List of Eligible Skilled Occupations 

 

The combined list of Eligible Skilled Occupation is a list of high demand occupations in Australia. It invites the Expression of Interests (EOIs) from the overseas skilled workers seeking short term & long term skilled jobs in Australia.

Visa Categories that use this particular list also have access to some occupations in the Medium and Long-term Strategic Skills List (MLTSSL). Hence, no separate STSOL list has been designed by DIBP; rather a combined list has been made including the eligible occupations in both STSOL and MLTSSL lists, i.e. the combined list of eligible skilled occupations. Below are the details as to who all are eligible to nominate an occupation from this combined list of eligible occupations.

Below given eligible skilled occupations is provided to guide you as to which visa program may be available to you depending on your occupation for the following visa types:

The Combined SOL list for Australia  specifies

  • The ANZSCO code, i.e. Australian and New Zealand Standard Classification of Occupations code for each and every occupation. The ANZSCO code provides detailed information about the skill level of a particular job, experience and qualifications that are required to work in occupations
  • caveats excluding the occupation use in certain scenarios (applicable to the TSS and ENS visas exclusively)
  • whether the occupation is listed under the MLTSSL (Medium and Long-term Strategic Skills List), the STSOL (Short-term Skilled Occupation List), the ROL (Regional Occupation List) or the RSMS (Regional Sponsored Migration Scheme) List.
