NSW skills lists

NSW invites and nominates SkillSelect EOIs at the ANZSCO unit group level. To be eligible for NSW nomination you must be skilled in an occupation that BOTH:

  • appears within an ANZSCO unit group identified below, AND
  • is eligible for the respective visa

It is important to note that not all occupations within ANZSCO unit groups are eligible for the respective visa. It is the responsibility of the prospective migrant to ensure their occupation is eligible for the visa before obtaining a skills assessment.   

New minimum point scores and skilled work experience requirement

We have introduced new minimum point scores and years of skilled work experience requirements in the 2022-23 financial year. 

To be eligible for NSW nomination you must meet the minimum point score AND minimum years of work experience in your occupation's ANZSCO unit group. 

For example, if you are skilled as a Finance Manager (occupation code 132211), you must have a minimum point score of 110 and 3 years of eligible skilled work experience to be considered in an invitation round. 

For a further explanation of how our skills list works, see our Common questions about skilled visas page.
