[NEWS] WA Occupation List Slashed Down To 18 Jobs

Yesterday afternoon, Western Australia released their revised occupation list. The previous WASMOL included 178 jobs, now, the list is down to 18.

What does it mean for you:

If your occupation is still on the list, you can:

  • apply for WA state-sponsorship and get an extra 5 points towards your skilled migration points test

  • apply for the 190 visa with WA state sponsorship

If your occupation is no longer on the list, you:

  • can no longer get state sponsorship from WA

  • may still apply for the 489/190 visa, but must obtain state sponsorship from another state (generally, you'll need to live and work in that state, meaning you may need to relocate)

  • may still apply for the following permanent visa: 189 Skilled Independent visa (if your occupation is on the Medium-Long Term List and score enough points on the skilled migration points test)

"I'm in WA, my occupation has been removed and I still need another 5 points to get skilled migration!"

Does this sound like you? If so, you should look at other states that might still have your job on their occupation list and see if you are eligible for their nomination. Otherwise, you should consider other pathways to PR, such as employer sponsorship.
