Medium and Long-term Strategic Skills List (MLTSSL) Australia

On 18 April 2017 the Skilled Occupation List (SOL) was replaced by the below Medium and Long-term Strategic Skills List (MLTSSL).

In order to qualify for skilled migration to Australia, you must nominate an occupation from the Medium and Long-term Strategic Skills List (MLTSSL). However, if you are applying for skilled migration via nomination by a State or Territory Government; you have the option of nominating an occupation from the Short-term Skilled Occupation List (STSOL).

Please note that all occupations used for immigration purposes are from the ANZSCO (Australia and New Zealand Skilled Classification of Occupations).

Understanding which Occupation List to use

If you apply for a General Skilled Migration visa and you are NOT nominated by a State or Territory Government, you must nominate an occupation from this Medium and Long-term Strategic Skills List (MLTSSL).

If you apply for a General Skilled Migration visa and you ARE nominated by a State or Territory Government, you must nominate an occupation from either this Medium and Long-term Strategic Skills List (MLTSSL) OR the Short-term Skilled Occupation List (STSOL).
