The Priority Skilled Migration Occupation List (ANZSCO)

The Priority Migration Skilled Occupation List has been expanded to 19 occupations with the addition of Veterinarian (234711) added in May 2021. This decision was made by Minister Hawke based on strong industry feedback.

These occupations are part of the Australian and New Zealand Standard Classifications of Occupations (ANZSCO) list.
