Australian Migration Occupartions in Demand

The Migration Occupations in Demand List (MODL) lists those occupations and specialisations from within the Skilled Occupation List (SOL) identified by the Department of Employment and Workplace Relations (DEWR) as being in ongoing national shortage.

If your nominated occupation is on the MODL, your General Skilled Migration visa application will receive priority processing.

The MODL is reviewed twice a year to take into consideration existing and emerging skills shortages. This does not mean the list is changed twice a year. Changes only occur if there has been a significant change in labour market trends.

As the MODL may change from time to time, you are advised to check the current MODL at the time you are lodging your visa application. You should also be aware that your occupation must be on the MODL at the time you lodge your application or when your application is assessed in order to be awarded 'occupation in demand/ job offer' points on the General Skilled Migration points test.

If your nominated occupation is on MODL either at the time your application is lodged or assessed, you will be eligible for 'occupation in demand/job offer' points on the General Skilled Migration points test. You will receive extra points if you have a job offer from a suitable Australian employer.

You will receive extra points if, in addition to your nominated occupation being on the MODL at the time your visa application is assessed, you have a job offer from a suitable Australian employer - that has employed at least 10 people on a full-time basis for the previous two (2) financial years.
