Short-term Skilled Occupation List (STSOL) Australia

On 18 April 2017 the Consolidated Sponsored Occupation List (CSOL) was replaced by the below Short-term Skilled Occupation List (STSOL).

The Australian Short-term Skilled Occupation List (STSOL) is used as part of the Australian points system for immigration. If you are applying for skilled migration via nomination by a State or Territory Government, you must nominate an occupation from the Short-term Skilled Occupation List (STSOL).

However, if your occupation is also listed on the Medium and Long term Strategic Skills List (MLTSSL), you may also qualify for a Skilled Independent Visa.

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 the 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 the Medium and Long term Strategic Skills List (MLTSSL) OR the Short-term Skilled Occupation List (STSOL). The STSOL is also referred to as the Combined List of Eligible Occupations.
