Skilled Sponsored (Migrant) Visa (Subclass 176) Eligible Skills List

The Queensland Government provides a limited number of nominations to those skilled migrants who have an eligible skill and who are assessed as likely to provide a clear benefit to the Queensland economy. DIAC eligibility is also a condition of Queensland nomination for sponsored visas.

Please be advised that applying for nomination correctly does not guarantee success. Nomination is granted at the discretion of the Queensland Government and once a decision has been made it is final, and the Queensland Government does not endorse any appeals to DIAC or the Migration Review Tribunal.

The eligible skills lists are reviewed regularly and updated to reflect current labour market conditions. Some occupations have limited places, and when these places have been filled, they will be removed from this list.
