Skilled Occupation List (SOL) Australia

Important

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

The information on this page is retained for historical informational purposes and is no longer relevant for skilled visa applications made after 18 April 2017.

 

The Australia skills list or Skilled Occupation List (SOL) is used as part of the Australian points system for immigration. In order to qualify for skilled migration to Australia, you must nominate an occupation from the SOL. However, if you are applying for skilled migration via nomination by a State or Territory Government, you also have the option of nominating an occupation from the Consolidated Sponsored Occupation List (CSOL).

Please note that all occupations on the new Skilled Occupation List are from the ANZSCO (Australia and New Zealand Skilled Classification of Occupations) as opposed to the previously used ASCO (Australian 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 Skilled Occupation List (SOL).

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 Skilled Occupation List (SOL) OR the Consolidated Sponsored Occupation List (CSOL).
