Update on Travel Exemptions and Priority Skilled List

We are continuing to see Travel Exemption categories gradually expand and occupations added to the Priority Migration Skilled Occupation List (PMSOL) while Australia seeks to ensure it has the critical skills needed to boost the economy during the pandemic.

Travel Exemptions to come to Australia

The Government has added two new Travel Exemption categories. Individuals in the below categories can now apply for a Travel Exemption to come to Australia:

A student in final years of study of a medical, dental, nursing or allied health profession university degree – conditions apply.

A person who resides on a vessel that seeks a safe port – conditions apply.

Australia’s Travel Exemption categories allow eligible persons to be exempt from the current international travel restrictions to enter or leave Australia.

Some categories are automatically exempt from the travel restrictions, while others are eligible to apply for a Travel Exemption.

The Priority Migration Skilled Occupation List (PMSOL)

The Priority Migration Skilled Occupation List (PMSOL) was also recently updated to include the occupation of Social Worker, based on advice from the National Skills Commission (NSC).

Contact us to find out more about which other occupations are eligible for skilled migration on the Priority Migration Skilled Occupation List (PMSOL).

The Government regularly updates the Priority Skills List so that it remains responsive to business workforce needs and the impact of COVID-19 on the Australian labour market.

Employers and skilled migrants can access priority government visa processing if the applicant’s occupation is on the Priority Migration Skilled Occupation List (PMSOL).
