Announcement of Priority Migration Skilled Occupation List, Australia

A new Priority Migration Skilled Occupation List (PMSOL) has been announced on 2nd September 2020. The Ministry of Immigration Citizenship, Migrant Services and Multicultural Affairs released the list in a media statement. 

This thing happened to support Australia’s Economic recovery after COVID-19. Urgent skills are needed in Critical sectors in Australia. So this aims to support Sponsored Skilled Workers to return to Australia. Labour Market could get strength in Labour Market Testing requirements with this initiative after the prevalence of a pandemic.

For now, employers need to provide evidence of local labour market tests, for a nomination to be approved. Labour Market testing needs proper advertisement details and recruitment efforts.
