2017 Western Australian skilled migration occupation list
21 June 2017

​The Department of Training and Workforce Development has released the updated 2017 Western Australian Skilled Migration occupation list.

You must have an occupation on the WASMOL and have relevant Australian or overseas work experience to be invited to apply for State nomination.

All applicants are required to provide evidence of a minimum one year full-time employment contract for all occupations on the WASMOL.

See the 2017 Western Australian skilled migration occupation list for all available occupations.

State Nominated Migration Program
28 March 2017

​New applications for the State Nominated Migration Program are being accepted with an interim Western Australian skilled migration occupation list (WASMOL) targeting those occupations which are of a specialist nature and have compelling evidence of unmet demand at a State level.

The State Government will be consulting with industry to develop a new list which is expected to be complete and operational in late May 2017.   
Further information will be posted on the migration portal as it becomes available.
 All applications received before suspension of the program on 13 March 2017 will be processed according to the criteria that were in place prior to this date. Invitations issued to intending migrants before 13 March will be honoured and their applications processed.
