Applicants having their occupations identified in the WASMOL list may be eligible to apply for Skilled Nomination Visa (Subclass 190) and Skilled Regional (Provisional) Visa (Subclass 489).

The table below lists the jobs available in the WASMOL list. Occupations may become unavailable without prior notice by the Australian Immigration authority. In order to be eligible for an Invitation to Apply, the applicant must have relevant work experience in Australia or overseas in their nominated occupation.

In case, an application requires licensing or registration for your occupation, you should be aware that a positive skill assessment or state nomination would not guarantee a license. Applicants are requested to check with the appropriate licensing authority to verify their eligibility for licensing or registrations.
