South Australia Opens Up Skilled Occupations List for Sponsorship

The South Australian Graduate List for State Nomination has been replaced by the Supplementary Skilled List.

This new list makes available for sponsorship all the occupations on the Consolidated Sponsored Occupation List (CSOL) that are not on the SA State Occupation List.

Occupations on the Supplementary Skilled List are available for sponsorship if the skilled individual meets the requirements under any one of the following categories:

> Is an international graduate of South Australia, or.

> Has worked in a skilled occupation in South Australia for the last 12 months, or.

> Has an immediate family member permanently residing in South Australia for 12 months or more.

To be eligible on the basis of an immediate family member residing in SA, the following conditions must be met:

* Your family member residing in South Australia must be your grandfather, grandmother, father, mother, brother or sister. A step or adoptive parent sibling is also eligible.
* Your family member must be over 18 years of age.
* Your family member in South Australia must be either an Australian Permanent Resident or an Australian Citizen.
* Your family member must be currently residing in South Australia and have resided in South Australia for the last twelve months.

The family member in South Australia is required to complete a statutory declaration to confirm that they meet the these requirements.
