Short-term Skilled Occupation List STSOL (2017-18)

Australian Authorities announced a new reform which is effective from 19 April 2017. According to which, the Consolidated Sponsored Occupation List (CSOL) will be renamed as the Short-term Skilled Occupations List (STSOL) and will be updated with new changes in every six months depending upon the judgments from Department of Employment.


The Short-term Skilled Occupation List STSOL comprises 268 skilled occupations.

Note*

Department of Immigration and Border Protection have not posted any separate Short-term Skilled Occupation List STSOL online as visa programmes on which this list is applied can also use few extra skilled occupations present on the Medium and Long-term Strategic List (MLTSSL). Due to this reason, the Department of Immigration and Border Protection have posted a combined list having all the eligible skilled occupations from the MLTSSL list and the STSOL list.
