Employer sponsored nomination and visa applications with an occupation on the PMSOL will be given priority processing.  All other skilled occupation lists will remain active, but the PMSOL occupations will take priority. The list is temporary and priority occupations may change as Australia recovers from the pandemic.

Overseas applicants must still apply for travel exemptions, which the experts at This is Australia have successfully applied for all through the pandemic.

Priority processing of nomination and visa applications for PMSOL occupations applies to these employer sponsored visa subclasses:

Temporary Skill Shortage (TSS) visa (subclass 482)

Skilled Employer Sponsored Regional (Provisional) visa (subclass 494)

Employer Nomination Scheme (ENS) visa (subclass 186)

Regional Sponsored Migration Scheme (RSMS) visa (subclass 187)
