My occupation is on the PMSOL , what does this mean?

Employer sponsored nomination and visa applications with an occupation on the PMSOL will be given priority processing.  This may give those on the PMSOL list  the opportunity to apply for an exemption to travel to Australia if offshore and awaiting a visa outcome.  This list is temporary and is subject to change as Australia recovers from the pandemic.

My Occupation is not on the PMSOL list, what does this mean?

Existing skilled migration occupation lists will remain active and visas will still be processed, but priority will be given to those in occupations on the PMSOL.
