New 22 occupations have been added to Priority Migration Skilled Occupation List
On 22 June 2021 Based on data from the National Skills Commission and feedback from stakeholders, 22 occupations have been added to the PMSOL.
The Priority Migration Skilled Occupation List (PMSOL) identifies 41 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.
