State Sponsorship Occupation List for Victoria

Occupations eligible to apply for Victorian state sponsorship under the Skilled – Sponsored (176) visa and the Skilled – Regional Sponsored (475 and 487) visas.
Victoria’s skilled migration program seeks to attract highly skilled and employable professionals and tradespeople with occupations that are difficult to source from the local labour market. Priority industries for Victorian state visa sponsorship are currently: Engineering and Building, Financial Services, Biotechnology and Science, Tourism and Hospitality, Information and Communications Technology, Health, Education and Trades. Extensive research and industry consultation on Victoria’s current and forthcoming labour market needs is undertaken to identify occupations suitable for state sponsorship. This ensures that Victoria’s industries have the skills required to remain highly productive, and that skilled migrants who come to Victoria are well placed for employment in their nominated occupation. If you are an international student or recent graduate, you should refer to the State Sponsorship Occupation List for Graduates in Victoria. If you are applying for Victorian sponsorship under the Skilled – Regional Sponsored (475 and 487) visa you must have a valid job offer in your nominated occupation and evidence you’ve accepted the job.

Assessment criteria
Applications for Victorian state sponsorship are assessed individually with a focus on the following key assessment criteria: • your ability to meet the minimum requirements, • the suitability and transferability of your qualifications, skills and experience—including any specialist capabilities—to the needs of Victoria’s labour market, • your ability and commitment to establish yourself, and any dependants, in Victoria with a view to your prospects for long-term settlement in Victoria, • the demand for your particular skills, expertise, and experience, and your ability to find work in Victoria, and • the demand for your occupation in relation to the annual sponsorship places allocated for that industry. There is very strong competition for Victorian sponsorship. Meeting the minimum eligibility requirements will not guarantee you an offer of sponsorship.
