Supplementary Skilled List

The Supplementary Skilled List reflects occupations available on the Short Term Skilled Occupation List (STSOL) that are not available on South Australia's State Occupation List. These occupations are only available if you meet the additional requirements listed here.

This list of occupations has not been identified as being in shortage; they are available to limited applicants who can demonstrate employment outcomes or family links to support human capital and economic objectives of South Australia's participation in the skilled migrant program. The list is available to international graduates of South Australia; skilled migrants who are working in a skilled occupation in South Australia (minimum time periods apply); have immediate family members permanently residing in South Australia who can support their settlement whilst seeking employment; or who demonstrate strong employability qualities (based on scoring very highly on the DIBP Points Test).

Please note that some occupations in this list may have certain barriers to being immediately eligible for employment.  Please research your employment opportunities thoroughly before choosing South Australian state nomination. It is your responsibility to determine your employability, if your occupation requires further training, or if it has registration, licensing, residency or other requirements before you can work in South Australia.
