Updated NSW Occupation Lists – December 2020

23 Dec


For anyone wanting to apply for a range of skilled visas in 2020, we know this year has been so difficult for you!

The NSW government has updated its occupation lists for Subclass 190 and Subclass 491 visas. They are working from a reduced list and this is the latest update as of December 2020. As expected, critical healthcare workers are in demand.

We are remaining optimistic that these lists will be expanded in early 2021. Please see occupations below.
