    Australia’s Skilled Occupations List is further divided into three categories; Medium and Long-term Strategic Skills List (MLTSSL) Short-term Skilled Occupation List (STSOL) and Regional Occupation List (ROL). Each of these categories has its own set of rules, allowances, and limitations. Occupations marked as being included in the Medium and Long-term Strategic Skills List (MLTSSL) will, for instance, allow the holder to live and work in Australia for up to four years while jobs listed as Short-term Skilled Occupations (STSOL) will allow the visa holder to live and work in Australia for 2 years.

    If your occupation is listed on the Medium and Long term Strategic Skills List (MLTSSL), you may also qualify for a Skilled Independent Visa but if it is listed as a short term you must apply for skilled migration via nomination by an Australian State or Territory Government.

    Below is the Skills Occupations List for Australia for 2019 of more than 200 occupations which would qualify you for an Australian work visa. Next to every occupation is an indication of the type of work visa you might be eligible for. It is in your best interest to talk to your immigration consultant about the process so that he/she may advise you on your best option.
