There are some ways to understanding the Northern Territory Migration occupation list:
- For Occupation marked with * requires Mandatory licensing or registration requirement and Demonstrated English level either sufficient to meet licensing / registration OR a minimum IELTS 6.0 score in each band or equivalent (whichever is higher).
- For Occupation Marked with !! requires you to have a high quality of communication skills
- For all other occupations not marked requires A level of English of at least IELTS 6 in each band or equivalent from one of the English testing systems accepted by the Department of Home Affairs.
If you are thinking about migrating to Australia especially to Northern Territory then you need to pay attention to those lists above. You may also want to consider other requirements as this will determine the possibility of getting an offer to apply for either visa subclass 190 or Subclass 491. Both are points tested skills which means that you will more likely to receive and offer from the state if you possess higher points compared to other migrants applying for the same state nomination.
