Work and Live in Australia via the Skilled Occupations Program
Skilled Occupations provide foreign workers with the opportunity to live and work in Australia either in an indefinite or temporary basis. These occupations are highly skilled job positions that are listed under different immigrations programs offered in Australia.
Visa Programs Offering Skilled Occupations
If you are looking to nominate an Australia skilled occupation acceptable for permanent or temporary skilled migration to the country, you can take advantage of the following visa programs:
If you want to live and work in Australia on a permanent or temporary basis as a skilled immigrant, you must nominate your respective skilled occupation and ensure that it is acceptable under the various visa programs mentioned above.
On the other hand, if you want to apply for an independent or Temporary Graduate (Subclass 485) - Graduate Work Stream or Family Sponsored Points Tested visa, you must choose an occupation included in the Skilled Occupations List or SOL. To pursue this visa pathway, you must undergo a skills assessment as part of your visa application process. You will need to directly contact the assessing authority relevant to your field of industry. For instance, if you want to work as a clinical psychologist in Australia, you must contact the Australian Psychological Society. The assessing authority will provide you with the necessary application forms and associated information relating to the assessment.
To determine the occupations included in the SOL, you may refer to the website of the Australian Department of Immigration and Border Protection.
