Combined List of Qualified Skilled Occupations
Combined List of Qualified Skilled Occupations

But what exactly is Combined List of Qualified Skilled Occupations? Well, it is basically a list of carrying the many high demand vocations in the country. The list in question invites Expression of Interests (EOIs) from the overseas trained manpower, interested in short term trained work opportunities in the nation.

The visa schemes that employ this specific list also have the right to use some professions given in the Medium and Long-term Strategic Skills List (MLTSSL). So, the Department of Immigration and Border Protection (DIBP) has not tailored any new STSOL list. Instead, it has made a combined list, comprising the different qualified professions in STSOL & MLTSSL lists together, namely, the Combined List of Eligible Skilled Occupations.

Who are entitled to nominate a vocation from the combined list?

The candidates submitting an application for any of these visa streams can nominate a line-of-work from the combined list.

  1. Employer Nominated Scheme (subcategory 186) – Direct Entry Stream
  2. Training Visa (subcategory 407)
  3. Skilled Nominated visa (subcategory 190)
  4. Skilled Regional (Provisional) visa (subcategory 489)–In case nominated by the government of an Australian State or Territory.
  5. Temporary Work (Skilled) visa (subcategory 457)–It is no more available). Occupations Removed from STSOL

With effect from April 19, 2017 Canberra has deleted 200 professions from the present Short-term Skilled Occupation List (STSOL).

Besides, nearly 16 professions on the MLTSSL have been confined to only apply to these specific visa plans, namely, Skilled – Independent (subcategory 189), Temporary Graduate (subcategory 485), Skilled-Regional(Provisional) (subcategory 489), in case the candidate is not armed with nomination from an Australian State or Territory government organization.

Important: The improvements in question only apply to the fresh petitions filed on, or post April 19, 2017 for the Skilled Nominated visa (subcategory 190), Skilled Regional (Provisional) visa (subcategory 489)—in case nominated by a State or Territory Administration, Training Visa (subcategory 407), Employer Nominated Scheme (subcategory 186) – Direct Entry Stream.

Comprehensive Occupation List

The list contains the professions, their ANZSCO Codes, and also the name of the Assessing Authority. For example, while in the Accountant (General)*** 221111 CPA/ICAA/IPA, Accountant (General) is the name of the vocation, 221111 is the ANZSCO Code, and CPA/ICAA/IPA is the Assessing Authority. For more details, please check with official website of the DIBP.
