One of the most, if not THE most important criteria you need to possess to qualify for an Australian visa is having a job considered ‘in demand’. These occupations are flagged within a number of Australian Occupations Lists published every 6 – 12 months by the Australian government.
Australian Occupations Lists
There are three occupations lists currently published by the Australian Government. The MTSSL or the Medium and Long-Term Strategic Skills List the Short-Term Skilled Occupation List which is referred to as the STSOL, and the Regional Occupations List often referred to as the ROL
As the names suggest, the first two lists contain occupations qualifying for visas which are valid for a range of different durations starting from 2 years to the more sought after Permanent Australian Visa. The Regional Occupation list, on the other hand, contains occupations that will enable migrants to qualify for an Australian visa if they are willing to work and live in Regional Australia.
When reviewing the different Australian occupations lists, keep in mind that the MLTSSL lists occupations that qualify for a permanent Australian Visa whilst the STSOL lists occupations that qualify for a short-term visa for between 2 – 4 years. The Regional Occupations List, on the other hand, is aimed at addressing the needs of regional Australia and is applicable for Subclass 187 visa.
