Immigration SA is able to offer a limited number of nominations for the Supplementary Skilled List and special conditions apply occupations. Planning levels apply to all occupations and availability is subject to change.
The Supplementary Skilled List reflects all occupations available on the Short Term Skilled Occupation List (STSOL) that are not available on South Australia's State Occupation List. 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.
Please note that some occupations in this list may have certain barriers to being immediately eligible for employment. Please research your employment opportunities thoroughly. You may also be able to use your skills in related skilled occupations. 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 South Australia.
