AUSTRALIA Priority Processing of Visa Applications ~ Australia Visa 2023
Big Opportunity for Teachers and Nurses to Apply for Australian Immigration
Australia is tackling the shortage of nurses and teachers by giving priority to their skilled visa applications.
Individuals belonging to the priority list will have their visa applications assessed within three days.
Applications for various Australian skilled visa categories have been processed according to ministerial guidelines as PMSOL, short for Priority Migration Skilled Occupation List, was discontinued.
It is safe to say that Australia is in dire need of more professional workers, especially teachers and nurses. Did you know that there is a list of occupations for prioritizing the order of assessment for different Australian skilled visa applications? This is a newly developed system that follows ministerial instructions to prioritize occupations.
Visa applications are ranked on the basis of professions, after discontinuing the PMSOL. As a result, professions with high demand are prioritized and given weightage.
Professions, such as teachers and nurses, have increased demand in Australia, which faces an alarming shortage of teachers and nurses. It is believed that by 2025, Australia is going to see a shortfall of teachers by 4000 positions.
Comparing PMSOL with the existing system of skilled visa application assessment, the former had a very long list of professions. PMSOL even had occupations in which there was no urgency to hire skilled workers. As a result, PMSOL was deemed ineffective, and a new active-priority system was introduced.
Let’s see which professions are going to be prioritized for visa application assessment;
- School teachers
- Nursing support workers
- Childcare workers and childcare center managers
- Counselors and psychologists
- Social workers
- Medical scientists
- Aged and disabled carers
- Medical technicians
- Australian visas processed as per priority
Below is a list of visas that follow the new priority standards for processing;
- Subclass 124 (Distinguished Talent)
- Subclass 186 (Employer Nomination Scheme)
- Subclass 187 (Regional Sponsored Migration Scheme)
- Subclass 188 (Business Innovation and Investment) (Provisional)
- Subclass 189 (Skilled – Independent)
- Subclass 190 (Skilled – Nominated)
- Subclass 191 (Permanent Residence (Skilled Regional))
- Subclass 457 (Temporary Work (Skilled))
- Subclass 482 (Temporary Skill Shortage)
- Subclass 489 (Skilled – Regional (Provisional))
- Subclass 491 (Skilled Work Regional (Provisional))
- Subclass 494 (Employer Sponsored Regional (Provisional))
- Subclass 858 (Global Talent)
- Subclass 887 (Skilled – Regional)

It goes without saying that this is the ideal time for professional workers, especially teachers and nurses, to go for skilled immigration offered by Australia. It is the perfect opportunity to build a new life in Australia with a high-paying job and a good lifestyle.
