Introduction to Western Australia Skilled Migration Occupation List (WASMOL)

In order to be eligible for Western Australian State Nomination, you need to have a nominated occupation identified on Western Australia Skilled Migration Occupation List (WASMOL) or Graduate Occupation List (GOL).

Western Australian State Nomination Migration Stream

The WASMOL is available to applicants whose intention is to use the General Stream, while the GOL is available to applicants whose intention is to use the Graduate Stream.

You may want to check the requirements for each of the stream through the above streams and see in which criteria you fall into. Afterwards, you have to check whether your occupation is listed.

Newly Updated Graduate Stream for Western Australia State Nomination

Since December 2019, the Graduate Stream for State Nomination will be extended to include vocational education and training (VET) graduates who complete a qualification in Western Australia at Certificate III level or above. The newly updated changes to the graduate stream are:

New Requirement Per December 2019

  • At least 2 years study in WA at one or more WA education providers studying ELICOS, VET at a registered training organization or Higher Education providers
  • 6 months of Australian work experience in the applicants nominated occupation on the Graduate Occupation List, or

You can consider if you want to apply for Skilled Nominated visa (subclass 190) or Skilled Work Regional (Provisional) visa (Subclass 491) once you have met the requirements for one of the streams.

However please bear in mind that the chance of you getting an offer to apply for the visas will depend on your possessed points. The higher points you have, the higher the possibility to receive an invitation from the state.
