The Priority Migration Skilled Occupation List (PMSOL) contains 18 occupations in the health care, construction, and IT sectors and aims to support Australia’s economic recovery from COVID-19 by allowing small numbers of sponsored skilled workers to return to Australia to fill urgent skills needs in critical sectors.
Applications with an occupation on the PMSOL list are given priority processing under the following visa subclasses:
- Temporary Skill Shortage (TSS) visa (subclass 482)
- Skilled Employer-Sponsored Regional (Provisional) visa (subclass 494)
- Employer Nomination Scheme (ENS) visa (subclass 186)
- Regional Sponsored Migration Scheme (RSMS) visa (subclass 187)
The PMSOL is a temporary list and its occupations are subject to change as Australia recovers from COVID-19.
On 27 November 2020, 272511: Social Worker was added to the PMSOL.

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.
