Australia Short Term Skill Occupation List

Short Term Skill Occupation List (STSOL) is the Australia demand List which was earlier known as Consolidated Sponsored Occupation List. The list contains 242 occupations that are currently in high demand in Australia.

This list is applicable to those persons who:

  1. Want to apply for Skilled Nominated Visa 190
  2. Skilled Regional Provisional Visa subclass 489
  3. Employer Nomination Scheme Subclass 186 visas (Direct Entry)
  4. Temporary Worker (Skilled) Subclass 457 visas
  5. Training Subclass 407 visas

The government has removed around 200 occupations from its latest demand list. Additionally, 24 occupations listed on STSOL will now only be eligible for positions located in regional Australia (for the subclass 457 and the subclass 186) and for the State and Territory Nominated stream of the subclass 489.

Thus, to apply for state nominated visas, make sure to check whether your nominated occupation is currently in demand or not in the Australian labor market. If your occupation is listed on STSOL, you may proceed further to apply for Australia PR visas.

Check your occupation on STSOL before applying for Skilled Migration Visas.

Below is the STSOL list which has the list of occupations that are currently in demand for the visa subclass 190 and subclass 489.
