Priority Migration Skilled Occupation List (PMSOL)

​​​​​​​For those who falls into the Priority Migration Skilled Occupation List (as listed herein), you should take immediate action on this great opportunity available now should you wish to migrate to Australia.

The Priority Migration Skilled Occupation List (PMSOL) identifies forty-four (44) ​occupations which fill critical skills needs to support Australia’s economic recovery from COVID-19. The list is based on expert advice from the National Skills Commission and consultation with Commonwealth departments.

Employer sponsored nomination and visa applications with an occupation on the PMSOL will be given priority processing. All other skilled occupation lists will remain active, but the PMSOL occupations will take priority.

The list is temporary and priority occupations may change as Australia recovers from the pandemic. The Government and the ​National Skills Commission will continue to monitor the impact of COVID-19 on the Australian labour market and assess Australia’s skills needs as they evolve and new sources of data emerge.
