Western Australia Skilled Migration Highlights

The Western Australian skilled migration occupation list (WASMOL), that lists occupations for the WA State nomination has been expanded to include Schedule 1 and 2. 

Updated requirements are available for applicants for the General stream as long as they have an occupation listed on Schedule 2. 

The requirements are as follows: 

  • meet the Department of Home Affairs criteria for the intended visa subclass; 
  • meet the minimum English requirements for your occupation; and 
  • have a 12 month full time employment contract in Western Australia in the nominated (or closely related) occupation. 

The existing requirements for the General stream will apply to applicants with an occupation on the WASMOL Schedule 1. 

The existing requirements are: 

  • meet the Department of Home Affairs criteria for the intended visa subclass; 
  • meet the minimum English requirements for your occupation; and 
  • reside in Australia, to be proven through current lease agreement or current utility bills. 

Furthermore, the iInvitations to apply for the State Nominated Migration Program resumed earlier this year in January 2021. The WA nomination criteria has been adapted keeping in mind the current pandemic situation and state health advise.  

The criteria are as follows: 

  • Intending applicants must be currently residing in Australia to be invited and nominated. 
  • Intending applications subject to a section 48 bar, are not eligible for State nomination. 
  • If you are applying through the Graduate stream and due to COVID-19 you completed some of your Western Australian studies online (either onshore or offshore), you are now able to use this study toward the Western Australian study requirement. 

For a full list of occupations on the WASOL please visit the official state website: https://migration.wa.gov.au/services/skilled-migration-western-australia/occupation%20lists
