Queensland Skilled Occupation List (QSOL) Skilled Nominated (provisional) subclass 489

Effective date: 3 September 2014


The State of Queensland provides nominations to skilled migrants with skills in demand who can make a
contribution to Queenslands economy.
Requests for Queensland nomination for skilled visas are usually processed within two weeks, once your full
application has been received by BSMQ.
To be eligible for Queensland nomination, applicants must:

Meet the eligibility criteria set by the Australian Department of Immigration and Border Protection.

Have an occupation on the QSOL for visa subclass 489 and meet any necessary requirements or
specialisations for that occupation. Applicants must hold a valid license, registration or membership that
allows them to work in Queensland.

Have a positive skills assessment in your nominated occupation from the relevant Australian assessing
authority that is three months or greater from its expiry date and eligible for migration purposes. Validity
periods and assessing authority details can be found at www.immi.gov.au/asri.

Have sat the International English Language Testing System (IELTS) and scored at least a six (6) on each of
the four bands (Writing, Speaking, Listening, Reading), noting that:

Certain occupations require a higher standard of English in order to obtain a positive skill assessment.
Please refer to the assessing authorities' English language requirements.

For all occupations, applicants who hold a passport for the United States, United Kingdom, Republic of
Ireland, Canada or New Zealand are not required to sit an English language test unless the
registration/licensing body for that occupation requires an IELTS/OET test or the applicant requires
additional points to meet DIBP requirements.

Meet one of the following criteria:

Have an offer of employment for 12 months in regional Queensland in nominated or closely related
occupation*; or
o

Note: selected occupations have mandatory minimum work experience requirements post
qualification that can not be waived in lieu of an offer of employment

Have two years full time work experience (post qualification) in your nominated occupation or
otherwise specified. The work experience does not have to be in Queensland or Australia.
PhD graduates who have completed a doctorate from an Australian or international education
institution in a specialised field relating to their nominated occupation are able to have their studies
counted towards BSMQs work experience requirements.

Note: If you are currently residing, working or studying in another state or territory of Australia, please
provide evidence you have accepted a job in Queensland in your nominated occupation or closely related
occupation.

Have sufficient funds to settle in Queensland

Demonstrate your ability and commitment to establish yourself and any dependents in Queensland with a
view to your prospects for long-term settlement in Queensland.

Submit a completed BSMQ application form which will be provided to you once you lodge an Expression of
Interest on SkillSelect. A non-refundable application fee must be paid prior to finalising your application.
Fees can be found at www.migration.qld.gov.au.

* closely related occupation as defined by the Australian Skills Recognition (ASRI) definition
Please note:

Occupations have programme targets and when these places have been filled the occupation will be
closed.

Programme targets do not apply to applicants who meet the requirements outlined in the QSOL and
are currently working in Queensland as per the Offer of Employment conditions as outlined below.

The status of that occupation will be regularly updated to indicate whether applications are now being
accepted.

As BSMQ sends requests for further information to complete the application process to multiple
people at the same time, applicants are encouraged to lodge a full and complete application before
the programme target is closed. If this occurs, BSMQ will refund your application fee and close your
application.

BSMQ will not contact you if your occupation is opened at a later date.

Applicants are encouraged to review QSOLs regularly to check the status of their occupation. It is at
BSMQ discretion when programme targets will be opened or closed.

Applications must apply for nomination by submitting an EOI through SkillSelect. Applicants seeking
Queensland as their nominating state will be considered before candidates selecting any state.

The QSOLs are regularly reviewed and updated to reflect current labour market conditions.

Applying for nomination correctly does not guarantee you will be granted a nomination or a visa.

Nomination is granted at the discretion of Business and Skilled Migration Queensland and once a decision
has been made it is final.

Business and Skilled Migration Queensland does not endorse any appeals to Department of Immigration
and Border Protection or the Migration Review Tribunal.

Offer of employment:
o

The offer of employment must meet all of the following conditions:

Be in your nominated, or closely related occupation as defined by the Australian Skills Recognition
definition;

Be based in regional Queensland, for visa subclass 489 this must be in an area outside of South
East Queensland (please check eligible postcodes at www.immi.gov.au)

Be for at least one year; and

A minimum of 35 hours a week.

The legitimacy of your job offer will be checked. If Business and Skilled Migration Queensland are not
satisfied with the job offer, you will not be nominated.
