Victoria’s Occupation List 2019 Brief Overview

Victoria’s Occupation List was introduced in 2019. The previous list was released on 2 July 2018 and it was reviewed. 

The Department of Immigration has released a new Victorian visa nomination occupation list.

This list will help to ensure the occupations and skill requirements for each occupation are aligned to Victoria’s current and future labour market needs.

Assessment Criteria on Victoria’s Occupation List

Applications for Victorian visa nomination are assessed with a focus on: 

  • Your ability to meet the minimum eligibility criteria;
  • The demand for individual skills and expertise (and prospects of finding a job in Victoria);
  • The suitability and transferability of your qualifications, skills and experience – including any specialist capabilities – to the needs of Victoria’s labour market;
  • Your commitment to settle in Victoria permanently. 

There is strong competition for Victorian visa nomination and meeting the minimum eligibility requirements does not always guarantee nomination.
