Victoria, Australia – Occupations List

State Nomination Occupation List for Victoria

This list was updated on 22 July 2017.

Victoria’s skilled migration program seeks to attract highly skilled and employable professionals and tradespeople with occupations that are difficult to source from the local labour market.

Extensive research and industry consultation on Victoria’s current and forthcoming labour market needs is undertaken to identify occupations suitable for state nomination. This ensures that Victoria’s industries have the skills required to remain highly productive, and that skilled migrants who come to Victoria are well placed for employment in their nominated occupation.

If you are an international student or recent graduate, also refer to the State Nomination Occupation List for Graduates in Victoria.

If you are applying for Victorian nomination under a regional nominated visa you must have a valid job offer in your nominated occupation in regional Victoria.

Streamlined pathway to state nomination

The Victorian Government offers fast-tracked state nomination for international PhD graduates and current or recent 457 visa holders. Applicants must meet all eligibility requirements to apply.

Assessment criteria

Applications for Victorian state nomination are assessed individually with a focus on these criteria:

  • your ability to meet the minimum nomination requirements
  • the suitability and transferability of your qualifications, skills and experience – including any specialist capabilities – to the needs of Victoria’s labour market
  • your ability and commitment to establish yourself, and any dependants, in Victoria with a view to your prospects for long-term settlement in Victoria
  • the demand for your particular skills and expertise, and your ability to find work in Victoria
  • the demand for your occupation in relation to the annual nomination places allocated for that industry.

There is strong competition for Victorian nomination. Meeting the minimum eligibility requirements will not guarantee you an offer of nomination. For detailed application guidelines and eligibility criteria, see Skilled Visas.
