South Australia’s Skilled Occupation List and Nomination Process for 2023-2024

The South Australian Government has recently released the Skilled Occupation List for 2023-2024 and introduced a Registration of Interest (ROI) process for prospective applicants who wish to seek state nomination in South Australia. Under this new system, applicants are required to submit a ROI and can only apply for state nomination if they receive an invitation.


South Australia’s priority in this invitation process is to retain international graduates and temporary visa holders who have studied or worked in the state. They are particularly interested in attracting experienced overseas workers with skills in high-demand sectors within South Australia, including Trades and Construction, Defence, Health, Education, Natural and Physical Science, and Social and Welfare Professions.

Additionally, South Australia is actively seeking highly skilled overseas workers who can significantly contribute to the state’s fast-growing industries and projects of national importance. This includes individuals with expertise in the defense industry and those with specialized skills in digital and critical technologies.
