South Australia Releases new Occupations in Demand list
South Australia have released their list of Occupations that are in demand in the State for Sponsorship. Although most of these occupations are only available onshore there are quite a few trades occupations that are available for Offshore applications from 20th July. Presently all the occupations that are listed below are only available for the 491 Temporary Visa which for South Australia still means that you can live anywhere in the state including the Capital City Adelaide.
At the moment we have concentrated on listing the Trade Occupations as they are the biggest category, though there are other Offshore Occupations which we will do a follow up release shortly.
Below is a listing of all the Trade Occupations that are currently available for SA State nomination under the 491 Regional Skilled Migrant visa. Given that South Australia is currently the only state to open to a wide range of Trade Occupations for offshore selection, competition for these places will be highly sought after. Applicants with Superior English, at least 90 points and at least 8 years of work experience will be prioritised. Please contact Emigrate to Australia at Taylor Hampton Solicitors to talk to us about starting the process on (0207427 5290) or put in an online assessment if you are in the categories and we can then contact you.
