Australian Skilled Occupation List


Occupations that are in high demand in Australia are included on what is called the Skilled Occupations List published by Department of Immigration, Multicultural and Indigenous Affairs (DIMIA).

The Skilled Occupation List is extensive, including over 500 jobs. The list is updated and revised regularly by DIMIA according to labour market trends. The list plays a major part in the application process for a visa under the Skilled Migrant Program. Only migrants whose occupation is included on the Skilled Occupation List qualify to come to Australia under a Skilled Visa.

Each occupation on the list is assigned a point value according to how much of a shortage of these skills there is in the Australian workforce. Occupations are awarded 40, 50 or 60 points. The higher the point value, the greater the demand for that occupation and if you fall into that occupational category, the greater your chance of finding work quickly.

Checking to see if your occupation is included on the list is a good starting point to finding out about your job prospects in Australia.
