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.

    Hi Expert,
    I am in kind of a unique situation. I did my bachelor’s degree in Management from Australia (Griffith University) in 2017, I am currently on the 485 visas here in Australia, my age is 25 and my PTE is 79 on each band. I am looking to apply for 190 PR visas. Total 70 points

    But my work experience is I have been employed for little over a year now as a Full-Time Business Consultant for a firm based in Bangladesh. I do my work online from here in Australia (However I did travel to Bangladesh and worked at the same firm physically in the office for 2 months). My work experience is highly related to my nominated skill list (224711: Management Consultant). Of course, I have all the necessary documents to prove my employment (payslips, bank statement etc).
    So my query is, given that my employment work experience is online and from an overseas firm, am I eligible for skill assessment by VETASSESS?

    My main concern at the moment is for the skill assessment.

      You can file for skill assessment and see if you can get a positive result.
