Vic Government Updates Wanted Skilled Occupations Lists

The Victorian Government’s State Nomination Occupation Lists have been updated to reflect changing labour market demand within Victoria.

An applicant’s occupation must be on the Vic Government’s State Nomination Occupation List (or SNOL) if there is to be a prospect of securing sponsorship of a skilled visa application under subclasses 190 or 489 from the Government of Victoria.

The following occupations have been removed:

  • 133211 Engineering Manager
  • 231212 Ship’s Engineer

All of the Automotive Trades have also been removed:

  • 321111 Automotive Electrician
  • 321211 Motor Mechanic (General)
  • 324111 Panelbeater
  • 324311 Vehicle Painter

The requirement for statisticians to have science experience has been removed.

Visa nomination applications will be assessed against these changes from the 26th of October, 2015.

The current lists of skilled occupations that the Vic Government will sponsor are available on the Live in Victoria website.
