Need help with state nomination?

​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​Applicants who have an occupation identified on the Western Australian skilled migration occupation list (WASMOL) (shown below) may be eligible for Western Australian State nomination using the following visas:​

  • ​​Skilled Nominated visa (subclass 190); or

  • Skilled Regional (Provisional) visa (subclass 489).

Please check the status of your occupation on the WASMOL​ to see if it is currently available for State nomination. Occupations may become unavailable without notice.

To be considered for an invitation to apply for Western Australian State nomination intending migrants must have Australian or overseas work experience in their nominated occupation.

To determine your eligibility to apply, consult the Criteria for State nomination​.

​State nomination applicants will have to compete with all potential employees in the Western Australian labour market to secure any available or advertised position.

For occupations which requir​e licensing or registration before being permitted to work in Western Australia, a positive skills assessment and State nomination do not guarantee you will meet the licensing or registration requirements of the relevant licensing or registration authority. Those considering applying for Western Australian nomination are advised to check with the appropriate licensing or registration authority to verify their suitability for licensing or registration.

 

Notes on using the WASMOL

​Occupations may have the following status:

  • Available = occupation is available for nomination

  • Restricted = occupation is under review and invitations to apply for State nomination will be limited pending the outcome of the review

  • Closed = occupation is closed for invitations

​The occupations identified on WASMOL do not relate to any specific job vacancies, nor represent any guarantee of a job, but rather identify occupations that are considered a priority for the State. It is recommended that you research employment opportunities in Western Australia (in your occupation) before making the decision to migrate.

The WASMOL is made up of two schedules.

Schedule 1

Schedule 1 is the highest priority occupations, with occupations being assessed as critical to the State and having unmet demand.

Applicants must demonstrate Australian or overseas work experience in their nominated occupation. This is a mandatory requirement for nomination by the Western Australian Government, which is over and above the minimum requirements set for the State Nominated program by the Commonwealth Government.

To determine your eligibility to apply, consult the Criteria for State nomination​.​

​Schedule 2​

​Schedule 2 includes those occupations which are critical to the State, and while not having evidence of unmet demand at a whole of State level, these occupations may have pockets of unmet demand at an industry sector or regional level. In these circumstances there is often a need for demonstrated experience in lead or highly specialised roles and where new graduates cannot satisfy this experience requirement.

Intending migrants nominating an occupation from Schedule 2 are required to provide evidence of an employment contract in that occupation and applicants must demonstrate relevant Australian or overseas work experience in their nominated occupation. This is a mandatory requirement for nomination by the Western Australian Government, which is over and above the minimum requirements set for the State Nominated program by the Commonwealth Government.

To determine your eligibility to apply, consult the Criteria fo​r State nomination​​.​
