Are you a skilled worker that wants to live and work within Australia as a permanent resident on a visa subclass 190? Read more as New South Wales (NSW) have recently updated their Priority Skilled Occupation list for 2017-18.
The Priority Skilled Occupation list is reviewed and revised on the advice of the state’s Department of Industry based on the demand and availability of occupational skills.

The occupations currently on the Priority Skilled Occupation list can be nominated for state nomination which provides applicants an additional five points towards their overall score on the points-tested visa application process.
After the calculation of points, the highest-ranking applicants in occupations on the Priority Skilled Occupation list, are invited first to apply for an Australian visa. There are no key dates involved in this process.“

Determining the occupations on our priority list, NSW uses Commonwealth and State employment data as well as evidence-supported feedback from NSW industry” states the New South Wales Department of Industry.
The process is ongoing and changes are made to the Priority Occupation List based on the needs of the NSW economy. To download the current Priority Skilled Occupation list for 2017-18, please click here.
