New South Wales Occupation List

The NSW or New South Wales Skilled Occupation List 2019 is revised on the command of New Wales Department of Industry based on the requirement and availability of occupational skills under Subclass 190 and Subclass 489 visa. Deciding the occupations on this list, NSW uses Commonwealth and state employment data, as well as evidence, supported feedback from NSW industry.

Economically the state has always done good, from having industries such as steel and shipbuilding in the older times to the current market being dominated by MNC’s and IT companies along with the Finance sector. Even though the current market is dominated by MNC’s and IT and Finance companies, agriculture remains important and contributes to the state’s income. The state offers employment benefits to highly skilled international applicants under the Skilled nominated migration (190).
