SOL List

sol list occupations various workersSkilled Occupation List (SOL list)  is relevant if you are applying for:

  • an Independent (subclass 189) or
  • Family Sponsored (subclass 489) Points Tested visa or
  • Temporary Graduate (subclass 485) – Graduate Work Stream,

For above visas relevant occupation from the Skilled Occupations List (SOL list)  must be nominated. If your occupation is not on the list, you are not eligible for any of above visas. In such a situation you’ll have to explore the other options. The best would be if you’d fill our visa eligibility questionnaire, so we’d do the hard work for you and advise what kind of visa is the best in your particular situation.

A skills assessment is required as part of your visa application and relevant assessing authority must be contacted directly to obtain a skill assessment. They may provide with all necessary information relating to the assessment, but, in reality, the much better idea is to engage a Migration Agent, who will lead you through the whole process, and do all the confusing work for you.

A new list is being released by the Department of Immigration 1st of July every year and is subject to change. Sometimes changes are significant, sometimes not. Visa application timing might be crucial as we had situations, where person eligible for subclass 189 visa missed the 30 June deadline and was unable to apply after new list, has been released, as their profession was excluded from new list. Fortunately we were able to find the other path for permanent residency.

    I have given my PTE and waiting for my result. Need to understand how possible is it to get the PR with 65 points

      It’s possible. Depends on what kind of visa are we talking about here?
