South Australia is a mainland state that has a broad range of work opportunities, and offers a safe family-friendly environment, world-class healthcare and educational infrastructure, pleasant climate and balanced lifestyle for immigrants. Occupations facing a shortage of local workers are listed on the South Australia Occupation List 2021. Immigrants who practice these occupations are recruited to address the shortage.
Immigrants who can fulfill the local labor market requirements are ‘nominated’ for specific visa categories. South Australia nominates foreign workers – who belong to the fields included in SA’s Australia Occupation List – for permanent or temporary residence, through the Subclass 190 visa and the Subclass 491 visa, respectively. The nominees then have to apply for the visa to the federal immigration authority – the Department of Home Affairs.
The eligible occupational categories featured on the list are mentioned below. It is important to note than several job titles could fall within a single category. Also, besides being qualified to practice an eligible occupation, candidates must also meet visa-specific Australia PR requirements or temporary residence requirements.
