South Australia Occupation List

The South Australia Occupation List 2019 includes the occupations that have high demand in the state. Candidates, who are looking forward to immigrating to SA under the General Skilled Migration, must have an occupation that is available on  the occupation list to apply. Besides Skilled workers and Business entities, the International Graduates can also choose their occupation on the list. The high-demand occupations in SA are segregated in two different lists : the State Occupation List and the Supplementary Skilled List.

Availability of visa options:

South Australia Immigration invites the applicants who apply through State Visa (Subclass 190) and the Regional Visa (Subclass 489).

  1. Skilled Nominated visa (Subclass 190)

With  Skilled Nominated Visa Subclass 190, you can live anywhere in South Australia. You have to stay in South Australia for the first two years of your residency period  in Australia. This visa is the pathway for permanent residency and the applicant has to nominate an occupation from the Short-Term Skilled Occupation List (STSOL) while applying for the 190 visa.

  1. Skilled Regional Provisional Visa (Subclass 489)

You can apply for this visa in two ways-

  • Family-sponsored- If you’re being sponsored by your family member or relatives living in the designated areas and are an Australian citizen or Permanent Resident.  Under this pathway, you have to nominate an occupation from the (MLTSSL) Medium and Long-Term Strategic Skills List.

As per New Rules(as of 5th July 2018), if an applicant is nominated for a 489 provisional visa then,  they subsequently can’t apply for the 190 visa and Immigration SA will only provide one nomination per applicant.
