Australia’s new skills list Australia has released a new skills list – ‘Priority Migration Skilled Occupation List (PMSOL)’. The PMSOL identifies Australia’s current critical skills needs by using the data from the National skills commission and commonwealth departments. The list is temporary and these modifications may help the Australian economy to recover from the impact of COVID-19. If you are planning to apply for an Australian visa then you should contact our team of migration agents in Brisbane who can give you a better understanding of what to do and how you need to apply for the visa. About the Priority Migration Skilled Occupation List The main aim of this list is to support the Australian economy to recover from the effect of pandemics. Around 17 occupations are included in this list. Employer-sponsored nomination and visa application with this application will be given priority processing. All other skilled occupation lists are going to remain active but PMSOL occupational list will be given the priority. The Federal Government has highlighted the importance of making the Australians job secure and making sure there is no critical skill shortage.

Additionally, the skilled migrants are going to be job multipliers so that Australian economy can recover on time. ’ The national skills commission and the government will continue to check the impact of COVID-19 on the Australian labor market.
