Need help with state nomination?

Applicants who have a nominated occupation identified on the Western Australian skilled migration occupation list (WASMOL) or Graduate occupation list (GOL) may be eligible for Western Australian State nomination using one of the following visa subclasses:

The WASMOL is available to applicants who intend to use the general stream.
The GOL is available for applicants who intend to use the graduate stream.
To determine your eligibility to apply, consult the Criteria for State nomination.


Notes on using the occupation lists

Occupations may have the following status.

  • Available: occupation is available for nominations invitations.

  • Under review: 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.

Check that your occupation is available and eligible for your intended visa subclass. Occupations may become unavailable without notice.

Regional WA only

Candidates nominating for occupations that are designated 'Regional Western Australia only' in the General or Graduate stream must provide evidence of a job offer/contract of employment in a location defined by the Commonwealth as Category 3 - Regional Centres and Other Regional Areas (not Perth and Mandurah). These include the following areas by postcodes: 6041 to 6044, 6084, 6207, 6213, 6215 to 6537, and 6560 to 6770.



The occupations identified on the occupation lists 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. 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 require 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.

*     190 - State Nominated visa (subclass 190)

**    491 - Skilled Work Regional (Provisional) visa (subclass 491)

The Commonwealth Government determines the Regional Occupation List (ROL) which specifies those occupations that are only eligible for regional areas. In the table above, occupations listed as only available for the 491 are included on the ROL, with the Commonwealth Government precluding them from the 190 visa.
