Consolidated Sponsored Occupation List (CSOL)

The following is the current list of occupations with ANZSCO codes that are qualified to be nominated under Standard Business Sponsorship for a 457 Temporary Work visa, ENS Employer Sponsored visa, or State/Territory Sponsored Skilled Migration visa.

Note: For the Subclass 190 State/Territory Sponsored Skilled Migrant Visa, applicants may choose an occupation that is on this list, or one that is on the Skilled Occupations List (SOL). Note, however, that not all States and Territories will sponsor all occupations, and there are often limits and quotas for occupations both at the State/Territory level and at the Federal level. Some states will also create additional requirements above and beyond the DIAC requirements a particular visa. For instance, while IELTS 6.0 on each band is the minimum passing score for skilled migration visas, some states require IELTS 7.0 or better for certain occupations. For more information, consult your Registered Migration Agent for complete information.

Other transitional and special regulations may apply to the visa you are considering – consult your agent for more details.
