On 22 June 2021, the Minister for Immigration, Citizenship, Migrant Services and Multicultural Affairs Alex Hawke MP announced the inclusion of a further 22 occupations on the Priority Migration Skilled Occupation List (PMSOL).
This brings the total now to 41 occupations.
The PMSOL is a list of critical occupations necessary for the ongoing recovery of Australia’s economy from the impact of COVID-19.
This means that employer sponsored nominations and visa applications for those occupations will get priority processing. Skilled migrants in those occupations with a valid employer sponsored visa will also be able to get inbound travel exemptions.
The list now includes:
- • accountants
- • engineers and other mining sector occupations
- • chefs
- • medical specialists including nurses
- • software specialists
- • social workers
If you are an employer and want to sponsor a skilled migrant, and want to know if an occupation is on this list, contact the team at Ward Keller.
