The federal government has released a new Priority Migration Skilled Occupation List (PMSOL) contains 17 occupations aiming to fill urgent skill needs in critical sectors. Applicants from overseas will receive travel exemptions upon receives visas.
“These occupations in the health care, construction and IT sectors will supercharge both our health and economic response to COVID-19.
“Visa holders, who have been sponsored by an Australia business in a PMSOL occupation can request an exemption from Australia’s travel restrictions, but will be subject to a strict 14 days quarantine on arrival at their own expense.”
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.
• Temporary Skill Shortage (TSS) visa (subclass 482)
• Skilled Employer Sponsored Regional (Provisional) visa (subclass 494)
• Employer Nomination Scheme (ENS) visa (subclass 186)
• Regional Sponsored Migration Scheme (RSMS) visa (subclass 187)
Note: The list is temporary and priority occupations may change as Australia recovers from the pandemic.
