Skills Occupation List. What does it all mean?

Skills Occupation List

The Australian Department of Immigration and Border Protection issues an annual Skills Occupation List (SOL) for those considering migration to Australia. This list is vital for individuals aiming to contribute high-value skills to Australia’s economy over the medium to long term (government list). It’s crucial to check SOL approval before applying for a points-based skilled migration or family-sponsored stream of the Subclass 489 Skilled Regional (Provisional) visa.

Before applying for a points-based skilled migration or the family-sponsored stream of Subclass 489 Skilled Regional (Provisional) visa, it’s crucial to check SOL approval. This ensures alignment with the government’s criteria for skilled migration.

The key criteria:

If your occupation is on the SOL, you can apply for a points-based skilled visa. Meeting criteria include having a listed profession, obtaining a skilled assessment, being under 50 years old, achieving specified points, and reaching the required English proficiency (IELTS – minimum score of 6.0).

Notably, the SOL undergoes periodic reviews by the Department of Immigration and Border Protection. This process may result in potential additions or removals based on prevailing labor market conditions, emphasizing the need for regular updates.
