The Skilled Occupations List or more commonly known as the 'SOL' is a list of skilled occupations that are in need in Australia comprising of 4 major groups i.e. managers and administrators; professionals; associate professionals; and tradespersons and related workers.
The Australian Government wants a targeted, high-value, demand-driven, skilled migration program that is responsive to the needs of the Australian labor market and there are minor changes to the SOL from time to time.
Our experienced in-house Registered Migration Agents have first-hand knowledge to guide you through this selection process to optimise your chance of success.
