​​​​​​The Priority Migration Skilled Occupation List (PMSOL) identifies 44 ​occupations which fill critical skills needs to support Australia’s economic recovery from COVID-19. The list is based on expert advice from the National Skills Commission and consultation with Commonwealth departments.

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.  Priority processing of nominations and visa applications for PMSOL occupa​​tions applies to these employer sponsored visa subclasses: 482, 494, 186, 187. To prioritise processing occupations on the PMSOL, Ministerial Directions 87 and 88 have been effected

The list is temporary and priority occupations may change as Australia recovers from the pandemic. The Government and the National Skills Commission will continue to monitor the impact of COVID-19 on the Australian labour market and assess Australia’s skills needs as they evolve and new sources of data emerge.
