Offshore visa holders, who have been sponsored by an eligible Australia business in any of the PMSOL occupations will be able to request an exemption from current Australia’s travel restrictions. Once the exemption is granted, these persons will be subject to a strict 14 days quarantine on arrival and at their own expense. Read more >> here.

The occupations were chosen after careful analysis and the list will be reviewed regularly.
