NSW Skilled Occupation Lists
NSW occupation lists identify the eligible occupations for NSW nomination. From 2015, NSW has two occupation lists:
- The NSW 190 Skilled Occupation List (NSW 190 List) includes the occupations that are eligible for NSW nomination for the State Skilled Nominated (190) visa.
- The NSW 489 Skilled Occupation List (NSW 489 List) includes the occupations that are eligible for NSW nomination for the Skilled Regional (489) visa.
Candidates seeking NSW nomination for skilled regional migration (489) should contact the NSW region that they are interested in.
Visit Skilled regional nominated migration (489) for contact details.
The occupations on these lists are selected to meet the skill needs of the NSW economy. The lists will be amended from time to time according to the skills needs in NSW. In some cases, NSW may need to limit the number of invitations to certain occupations to ensure that places allocated under the program align to the skills needs of NSW.
