The New South Wales skills lists for the 2022-2023 migration year have just been made available.
NSW has recently made available details regarding both its Skilled Nominated (Permanent) visa (subclass 190) and Skilled Work Regional (Provisional) visa (subclass 491). To be eligible for a NSW nomination, you must be skilled in an occupation that both:
- Appears within an ANZSCO unit group identified on the skills list for the visa (see below) you are considering, and
- Is eligible for that visa.
Not all occupations within the skill levels listed in the NSW Skills List are eligible for a particular visa. Eligibility is determined by the Department of Home Affairs. It is your responsibility to ensure that your occupation is eligible for the visa you are considering before obtaining a skills assessment.
The NSW skills lists
The skills lists for 2022-23 are available on the Investment NSW website. Additional ANZSCO unit groups will not be added this financial year, however, the skills lists are reviewed annually.
New minimum point scores and skilled work experience requirement
New requirements for minimum point scores and years of work experience have been introduced for 2022-23.
To be eligible for NSW nomination you must meet the minimum point score and minimum years of work experience in your occupation’s ANZSCO unit group.
