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 two main occupations lists currently published by the Australian Government. The MTSSL or the Medium and Long-Term Strategic Skills List and the Short-Term Skilled Occupation List which is referred to as the STSOL.
As the names suggest, each of the lists contains 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.
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.
