Updated List of State Nominated Occupations for Western Australia

Western Australia is the largest state of Australia (the 6th largest country in the world) and yet, its population density lies amongst the lowest in the world. You will be surprised to know that more than 35% of the 2.5 million people who live in WA were born overseas. Naturally, Western Australia respects cultural diversity and upholds highest standards of egalitarian spirit.

Perth is the capital of Western Australia and it enjoys a Mediterranean climate with mild winters and warm to hot summers. Besides its central business district, there is a vibrant entertainment district called Northbridge where you'll find several famous restaurants, cafés, and bars. This area is known for its thriving festivals and exciting nightlife.

The regional areas of Western Australia offer you a peaceful and relaxed lifestyle well-tempered with top-notch infrastructure and services. Around here, you will find forests and vineyards as well as white sandy beaches.

Western Australia is a heaven for skilled and experienced workers. Skilled visas (including both temporary and permanent visas) rule Australia’s migration program with almost a two-thirds majority.

If your occupation is on the Western Australia occupation list or the Graduation Occupation List, you may vie for the Western Australia state sponsorship or nomination and apply for visa 190 or visa 489 (which require you to be nominated by the state).
