QLD SOL – 2014 Changes

In November 2013 the new Queensland Skilled Occupation Lists (QSOLs) were announced and include more occupations and less stringent eligibility criteria than ever before.

This means:

  • The QSOL 190 requires only two years experience for most occupations, with 84 occupations available for state nomination.
  • The QSOL 489 requires either a job, job offer or two years experience for most occupations and there are 150 occupations available for state nomination.
  • English language requirements for all occupations is now 6.0 in all components or the minimum required by an assessing body.
