SOL List Australia 2019-20

Skilled occupation list Australia is divided into 3 separate parts called SOL (Short-term Skilled Occupation List), MLTSSL (Medium and Long-term Strategic Skills List) and ROL (Regional Occupation List).

You should have your job profile in one of the lists to be eligible to file Australia skilled Permanent residency application known as Expression of Interest (EOI). Australia immigration has an online tool to submit EOI known as SkillSelect.

The first step is to find your Job profile ANZSCO code from above list and then check your Australia PR points (calculator).

How Many Points are Required for Australia PR?

Australia PR requires minimum 65 points to file Expression of Interest. The more points you get, the higher chances you have for PR selection.

Which Occupations are in Demand in Australia

The list of jobs in demand in Australia is given above.

Australia SkillSelect ‘Date Of Effect’ for Invitations

Date of effect is the date you submitted your SkillSelect EOI application. This date changes whenever you make a change to your EOI and re-submit.

It is shown clearly on your SkillSelect profile. Just log in and see the date mentioned there.

Australia SkillSelect ‘Pro-Rata’ Invitations meaning

Pro-rata means that dividing the total number of invitations available are divided into number of months, to make sure that equal number of invitations are available every month.

Example: Pro-Rate

Lets say that for ‘Software Engineers’ job, Australia plans to issue about 15000 invitations from July to June. Then, they will divide the 15000 by 12 to reach at the number of 1250 per month.

So, they will restrict issuing invitations to ‘Software Engineers’ category to about 1250 per month. This is just an example to explain pro-rata. Actual number of invitations may be different.

Example: Date of Effect (DOE)

Date of effect for Software Engineer was 11/04/2018 6:05 PM (11 April, 2018). It is the END date that was considered for 11 July 2018 Australia SkillSelect draw.
Anybody who had achieved a score of 75 before that date and time was invited in 11 July draw. If you reached the 75 point on 22 July, 2018, your EOI would not even be considered in this draw.

    How would we know which ANZSCO code Jobs are available at what state in Australia? This information would help submitting the EOI when applying by giving our preference to increase our chance of invitation.

    Thank you very much.

    Hi @rakeshjoshi

    The first step is to find if your job is part of the Australia occupation list or not.

    The second step is to find your total Australia points.

    Once you are done with these two, come back here and then we can suggest next step.

    Hello Anil

    I have a query about SOL LIST Australia 2019-20. For few jobs, under their Anzsco codes the states are mentioned like, NSW etc. But for few codes they are not mentioned.

    For eg : 262113. This job code doesn’t have any location/state mentioned under it.
    What does it mean?

    Could you please clarify it?

    Thanks in advance.

          There is no location criteria to file as such.
          If you both have your documents, you can file from India or Pakistan. It does not matter.

    Hi Anil,

    I appreciate your efforts for answering our queries; I want to clarify few questions. Can you please advise on it?
    I am looking to Apply for PR Australia Visa but I have an issue with my Graduation as I did Bachelors of Commerce (B Com) and Moved to IT. I have Experience in an IT Field more than 6 years now. I am looking to apply for Job Code: 262113 (System Administrator). Following are my Points
    Age: 31 30 Points
    Education: B com 15 Points
    Experience: 7 Years (5 Points due to irrelevant Degree)
    PTE: 10 Points
    State Nomination : 5 Points
    Total: 65 Points.
    I have additional Diplomas/Certification from Microsoft would they consider those certifications?
    My Spouse did graduation but she does not has experience. Can i get 5 points from her Education ?


    • Anil Gupta
      Anil Gupta 24 Feb, 19 at 11:14 am

      65 points are not enough for 262113 (System Administrator) at this time. To have a realistic chance of invite, i suggest to increase your points to 70.
      Certification do not carry any points unless they are assessed by assessment agency as relevant.

      Your spouse’s education needs to be assessed by the relevant assessment agency and if it comes out positive, you can claim spouse points given that she qualifies on other eligibility criteria.

        Hi Anil,

        Thank you for your valued information. I have total years of Experience in IT 6 years and 3 years from Non IT. Based on my case, Irrelevant Degree that is Bachelors Degree in Accounting + 3 years of Experience in non IT would not get any Experience points. And my 6 Years of Experience will be deducted for getting job code 262113 (System Administrator).

        Is there any way to get my experience points ?


        • Anil Gupta
          Anil Gupta 26 Feb, 19 at 9:36 am

          I am not aware of any other way to get points for your work experience.

    Hi Anil,

    Is there any possibility of getting an invitation with 65 score for Recruitment Consultant(223112/STSOL), Human Resource Adviser (223111/Regional) and Human Resource Manager (132311/STSOL)? Is there any demand for them?


    • Anil Gupta
      Anil Gupta 24 Feb, 19 at 10:49 am

      At this point of time, only people with 70 or more points are getting invite in Recruitment Consultant(223112/STSOL), Human Resource Adviser (223111/Regional) and Human Resource Manager (132311/STSOL).

      Just to increase your points by improving your English Language Score. I recommend PTE.

    Hi Anil,
    I work as a Finance Manager and it’s categorized under Short-term Skilled Occupation List (STSOL). Currently the benchmark is 70 points, which is okay for me. Do you think if I lodge an EOI in the next 6 months, I have a chance of getting an invite?
    Looking forward to your kind advice.

    Planning to retry PTE and see if can get 20 on my PTE. DO i fair any chance ?

    • Anil Gupta
      Anil Gupta 22 Feb, 19 at 9:09 pm

      You do not have any chance with 65 points for 261313 software engineer.

      Increase points to 70+ to have realistic chance of invite.
