Priority Migration Skill Occupation List (PMSOL )

Migration Agent Joondalup Visa Agent Perth. The acting Immigration Minister Alan Tudge announced a  Priority Migration Skill Occupation List (PMSOL ) of 17 occupations in the areas of Healthcare, Construction, and IT sector. They will be able to enter Australia to assist in the COVID recovery.  

What is Priority Migration Skilled Occupation List

​​​​The Priority Migration Skilled Occupation List (PMSOL) identifies 17 occupations that fill critical skills needs that support Australia’s economic recovery from COVID-19. The list was prepared based on expert advice from the National Skills Commission in consultation with Commonwealth departments.

Priority Processing

Employer-sponsored nomination and visa applications with an occupation on the PMSOL will be given priority processing.  All other skilled occupation lists will remain active, but the PMSOL occupations will take priority. 

Migration Agent Joondalup Visa Agent Perth List is Temporary

The list is temporary and priority occupations may change as Australia recovers from the pandemic. The Government and the National Skills Commission will continue to monitor the impact of COVID-19 on the Australian labour market and assess Australia’s skills needs as they evolve and new sources of data emerge.

Small Numbers

Acting minister Tudge said that the new priority skills list and strengthened labour market testing will allow small numbers of sponsored skilled workers to return to Australia to fill urgent skills needs in critical sectors. It will help to create Australian jobs and rebuild Australia’s economy.

Right Balance

He said that the changes would strike the right balance for Australia’s economic recovery. Our priority is getting Australians back into work but we also need key health workers to help fight the virus and skilled migrants who are going to be job multipliers, to help the economy recover.

PMSOL Visa Holders

Labour Market testing will be required to sponsor candidates on these occupations. Visa holders, who have been sponsored by an Australia business in a PMSOL occupation can request an exemption from Australia’s travel restrictions, but will be subject to a strict 14 days quarantine on arrival at their own expense.

The 17 occupations (ANZCO code) are:
