Frequently answered questions

1What are the benefits of nominating an occupation that is in PMSOL?
First of all, your nomination and visa applications will be prioritized. Secondly, new occupations in high demand had been included in this list. Now it is time for those Accountants that had been waiting for news to be able to celebrate! Hopefully, we will see many visas being granted shortly. Chefs have also been included, so we are expecting to receive several grants for them.
2Which visas can I apply if my occupation is included in PMSOL?
Depending upon your occupation, work experience, qualification and employment (with sponsorship offer) below options can be explored,
• Skilled Nominated Visa (subclass 190)
• Skilled Work Regional (Provisional)Visa (subclass 491)
• Skilled Independent Visa (subclass 189)
• Temporary Skill Shortage (TSS) visa (subclass 482)
• Skilled Employer-Sponsored Regional (Provisional) visa (subclass 494)
• Employer Nomination Scheme (ENS) visa (subclass 186)
• Regional Sponsored Migration Scheme (RSMS) visa (subclass 187)
Although it can be noticed that the majority of the available visas are through Employer sponsorship or state nomination, the skilled independent subclass 189 is still available for priority processing if your occupation is in PMSOL.
3Does it mean that if my occupation is not in PMSOL, I will not get my Visa granted?
As advised by the Australian Department of Home Affairs, all other skilled occupation lists remain active, but the PMSOL occupations will take priority. We suggest that if your occupation is in PMSOL, get in touch with us to assess your eligibility. You can book a phone or video consultation with us.
