Tasmanian Skilled Occupations List (TSOL)

What is TSOL?

 

The Tasmanian Skilled Occupations List (TSOL) identifies skills that are currently in demand in Tasmania and is derived from the list of eligible occupations for the Skilled Nominated visa (subclass 190) and Skilled Work Regional (Provisional) visa (subclass 491), as defined by the Australian Government. The occupations listed have been identified by the Tasmanian Government as areas of skills shortage in the State, based on the extent of evidence currently available.

What is it used for?

 

For Tasmanian Government nomination purposes, it is primarily used in the assessment of applications falling under the ‘Overseas Applicant Category (3A)’ for the Skilled Work Regional (Provisional) visa (subclass 491).

It also indicates the priority areas for skills development in the state and can be a guide to study and training areas that will enhance employment prospects.

The TSOL may also be used for prioritising and/or limiting nominations based on nomination places available for both the Skilled Nominated visa (subclass 190) and Skilled Work Regional (Provisional) visa (subclass 491).

Overseas Applicants

 

For overseas applicants, please note that the following list is only an indicator of skill shortages and if your occupation is listed below, it does not mean that employment is guaranteed for you in Tasmania. Applicants must compete in the local job market to secure employment. Please research your employment opportunities thoroughly.

It is your responsibility to determine if your occupation requires further training, or if it has registration, licensing, residency or other requirements before you can work in Tasmania.

ANZSCO and Assessing Authority

 

ANZSCO means the Australian and New Zealand Standard Classification of Occupations published by the Australian Bureau of Statistics (ABS), as in force on 16 November 2019. Please refer to the following link for more information on particular occupations, including tasks and skills involved.

If you nominate a particular occupation, you would need to get your skills assessed by the relevant assessing authority and obtain a valid skills assessment in order to be eligible to apply for a state sponsored visa. Please refer to the following link for information on all current assessing authorities and their contact details.

High Demand Occupations – Exemption from employability requirement

Some occupations are designated as “High Demand” in the list below. Applicants for nomination under the ‘Overseas Applicant Category (3A)’ for the Skilled Work Regional (Provisional) visa (subclass 491) do not need to provide employability research and evidence if they meet the experience, English requirements and any other items specified for that occupation.
