The Minister for Immigration, Citizenship, Migrant Services and Multicultural Affairs Alex Hawke MP has today announced the inclusion of a further 22 skilled occupations on the Priority Migration Skilled Occupation List (PMSOL).

Having an occupation on the PMSOL allows skilled workers to be eligible for a travel exemption although a formal request must still be lodged with the Australian Border Force Commissioner.  The visa process and quarantine rules continue to apply.

The addition of the new occupations (in bold)brings the PMSOL to 41 in total:

  • Accountant (General) (221111)
