This list has been updated to 44 occupations as of October 2021.

Existing skilled migration occupation lists will remain active and visas will still be processed, but priority will be given to those in occupations on the PMSOL list.
Visa holders, who have been sponsored by an Australia business in a PMSOL occupation, can apply for travel exemptions to enter Australia during the COVID-19 border closure, but will be subject to quarantine arrangements at their own expense.
