New Priority Migration Skilled Occupation List (PMSOL) announced

Today on 2 September 2020, Acting Minister for Immigration Alan Tudge has announced a new Priority Migration Skilled Occupation List (PMSOL) of 17 occupations. Successful applicants who are currently offshore will be able to migrate Australia in order to assist with the health and economic response to COVID-19.

The 17 occupations are in the health care, construction and IT industries.

• Chief Executive or Managing Director (111111)
• Construction Project Manager (133111)
• Mechanical Engineer (233512)
• General Practitioner (253111)
• Resident Medical Officer (253112)
• Psychiatrist (253411)
• Medical Practitioner nec (253999)
• Midwife (254111)
• Registered Nurse (Aged Care) (254412)
• Registered Nurse (Critical Care and Emergency) (254415)
• Registered Nurse (Medical) (254418)
• Registered Nurse (Mental Health) (254422)
• Registered Nurse (Perioperative) (254423)
• Registered Nurses nec (254499)
• Developer Programmer (261312)
• Software Engineer (261313)
• Maintenance Planner (312911)

The Australian Minister of Employment, Michaela Cash explained “the occupations were chosen after careful analysis of recent changes to the internet vacancy index, changes in employment, and longer-term stability in the labour market for individual occupations.”

How does it work?
Visa applicants have to be sponsored by an Australia business in the relevant PMSOL occupation. Successful candidates have to request an exemption from Australia’s travel restrictions, and will be subject to a strict 14 days quarantine on arrival at their own expense.

What if my occupation is not on the list?
The existing skilled migration occupation lists will remain active and visas will still be processed. However, priority will be given to applicants in occupations on the PMSOL.

What’s the next step?
