South Australia Occupations List 2018

(We are sharing this information for the benefit of our readers and the migrant public at no cost or obligation)

State nomination requirements include:

  1. Commitment to South Australia – You need to commit to living and working in South Australia for two years from when you arrive, with a view to long-term settlement
  2. Age – under 45 years at the time of nomination
  3. Occupation – this must be listed on the State Nominated Occupation List as available.  Access to a supplementary occupation list and ‘special conditions apply’ occupations are available in some circumstances. 
  4. Skills Assessment – a positive General Skilled Migration skills assessment from the relevant authority
  5. Work experience – at least one year of skilled work experience in the last three years. Some occupations have a higher work experience requirement. If you are an international graduate of South Australia, you may be able to access a work experience waiver
  6. English – ability to meet Immigration SA’s minimum English language requirement for your occupation.  If you are a passport holder or citizen of the United States, United Kingdom, Ireland, Canada or New Zealand, you don’t need to provide an English test result
  7. Financial capacity – sufficient funds to settle in South Australia
  8. SkillSelect Expression of Interest (EOI) - you need to have an EOI which meets the Department of Home Affairs criteria and Immigration SA nomination requirements

This list is available to all applicants, including international graduates of South Australia. 

Additional occupations are available on the Supplementary Skilled List. These occupations are only available if you meet the additional requirements.

State nomination does not guarantee employment in South Australia and applicants must compete in the local job market. Please research your employment opportunities thoroughly. It is your responsibility to determine if your occupation requires further training, or if it has registration, licencing, residency or other requirements before you can work in South Australia.
