Skilled Migration Occupation Lists

Australia’s skilled visa programs are made up 3 main lists:

  • Short-Term Skilled Occupation List
  • Medium and Long-Term Strategic Skills List
  • Regional Occupation List

These are regularly reviewed to ensure they reflect genuine skills needs and help businesses continue to grow if skilled Australian workers are not available.

The current skills list can be found on the Department of Home Affairs website.
