Australia’s Skilled Occupations List 2017 (MLTSSL) and (STSOL)

The Australian economy experiences growth every year. Accordingly there becomes a need to adjust the Australian Skilled Migration List with occupations that cannot be filled by Australians to achieve certain goals which are set out by government.

Migrants working in Australia on a number of different visas often help towards the government achieving these goals set each year. These visas which are granted under strict conditions can be obtained once the criteria has been met.

The new Australian Skilled Occupation List 2017 (SOL) is being replaced by the Medium and Long term Strategic Skills List (MLTSSL) and has been reviewed to fill potential gaps in the Australian economy that needs to be filled.

Australia Skilled Occupation List for 2017

What is Australia’s Skilled Occupation List

The Australian Skilled Occupations List is a list of occupations that must be filled which are not being filled locally. The list is reviewed annually by the Australian Department of Immigration and Border Protection. This used to be known as the SOL and the CSOL.

The Skilled Occupation List (SOL) is being replaced by the Medium and Long term Strategic Skills List (MLTSSL).

Occupations currently listed on the SOL will remain available for visas that use the SOL at the sole occupation list (the Skilled Independent (subclass 189), the Graduate Work stream of the Temporary Graduate (subclass 485) and the Eligible Relative Nominated stream of the Skilled Regional (Provisional) (subclass 489).

The Consolidated Sponsored Occupation List (CSOL) has been replaced by the Short term Skilled Occupation List (STSOL).

There has been a removal of 216 occupations from the CSOL in creating the STSOL.

These removed occupations will affect the Employer Nomination Scheme (subclass 186), the Temporary Work (Skilled) (subclass 457), the Skilled Nominated (subclass 190), the State and Territory Nominated stream of the subclass 489 and some applicants for the Training visa (subclass 407).

In addition, 24 occupations listed on the 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.

Which visas are impacted by the changes?

These changes affect a range of temporary and permanent visas, including:

The Temporary Work (Skilled) (subclass 457);

The Direct Entry stream of the Employer Nomination Scheme (ENS) (subclass 186);

The Skilled Regional (Provisional) (subclass 489);

The Skilled Nominated (subclass 190);

The Skilled Independent (subclass 189);

The Training visa (subclass 407);

The Graduate Work stream of the Temporary Graduate visa (subclass 485).

Complete Our Visa Assessment To Check Your Eligibility

Will I have to meet any other requirements?

Yes If your occupation is on the list you will still have to meet other forms of criteria such as:


Once you have received your invitation you must be aged.

English language

Most applicants will need to undertake an English language test to obtain points for English.

Skills Assessment

All applicants must be assessed by the skills assessing authorities listed in our Skilled Occupation List below.

Points Testing

To be eligible you must pass the general skilled migration points test.  You can check your eligibility here.


SkillSelect is an online service that helps Australia manage its skilled migration programme.  All applicants must go through making an Expression of Interest (EOI) and receiving an invitation from the Department of Immigration to apply. It helps to ensure that the skilled migration programme is based on Australia’s economic needs.

200 Occupations have been removed from the Australian Skilled Occupations List:

These removed occupations will affect the Employer Nomination Scheme (subclass 186)

The Temporary Work (Skilled) (subclass 457)

What if I have identified a person in SkillSelect that I want to invite?

From 19 April, you will not be able to nominate and invite someone to apply for a subclass 190 or 489 visa in one of these removed occupations.
