South Australia listed over 180 Occupations from Airplane Pilots to Winemakers


South Australia has just released a list of over 180 occupations to be included as State nominated Occupations for 2018/2019.

The long list covers a great variety of occupations and as is normally the case it is especially the engineering, health and information technology fields that are well represented.  Your occupation might very well be listed which means that South Australia could consider issuing you with state or regional sponsorship!


The Skilled Occupations List covers occupations that are not being filled by locals but are needed to ensure the welfare of the state.  The state is therefore willing to issue sponsorship to viable candidates who meet the state and Australian government’s immigration criteria.  Viable candidates are persons with appropriate training, recognized education and relevant experience in the listed occupations.
