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:

  • Skilled Nominated visa (subclass 190); or
  • Skilled Regional (Provisional) visa (subclass 489).​

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.

Please check the status of your occupation on the applicable list to see if it is currently available for State nomination and eligible for your intended visa sublcass and qualification type (if using the graduate stream). Occupations may become unavailable without notice.

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

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.​

Notes on using the occupation lists

​Occupations may have the following status.

  • Available: occupation is available for nomination

  • 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


​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.   

 

You will need to have a skills assessment suitable for migration purposes in your nominated occupation. See the Department of Home Affairs website for more information on skills assessments and skills assessing authorities.
