ROL Regional Occupation List
The Australian Regional Occupation List (ROL) consists of a total of 77 occupations that are in high demand especially in the regional areas of Australia.
The Department of Home Affairs (DOH) recently introduced a new list (LIN 19/050) relevant for the Regional Sponsored Migration Scheme visa (RSMS) which became effective from March 2019 onwards.
The main aim of introducing this particular list as one of the important Skilled Occupation List was to address the needs of regional parts of Australia and introduce more labor in these areas. Further, this list is valid only for some of the key skilled visa programs and is therefore needed by the applicants who are applying under the following visa categories:
- Training visa (Subclass 407)
- Skilled Regional (Provincial) visa (Subclass 489)
- Temporary Skills Shortage visa (Subclass 482)
All these visa categories specifically deal with regional visa programs. Also, the Regional Occupation List is exclusively applicable for those applicants who have been sponsored or nominated by the Australian State or Territory Government agency and are issued an invitation to apply (ITA) either on or after 18 March 2019 under the above-mentioned visa categories.
The Department of Home Affairs regularly updates the Regional Occupation List (ROL) as per the changes in the conditions of Australian labor market. The Department of Employment, Skills, Small and Family Business (formerly known as the Department of Jobs and Small Business) is mainly responsible for reviewing the Regional Occupation List (ROL) under the given visa categories.

Additional 59 occupations included in the Australian Regional Occupation List (ROL) under the Skilled Regional (Provincial) visa (Subclass 489)
The Department of Employment (DOE) along with the Department of Home Affairs (DOH) has recently included a total of 59 new occupations within the Regional Occupation List (ROL) specifically for the Skilled Regional (Provisional) visa (Subclass 489).
Since, Skilled Regional (Provisional) visa (Subclass 489) is one of the most sort-after visa categories for getting the permanent residency (PR) to Australia, this particular inclusion of an additional number of occupations in the Regional Occupation List (ROL) is a positive step.
Moreover, some of the occupations that were removed previously from the Australia Skilled Occupation List are added again through the Regional Occupation List (ROL) under the Skilled Regional (Provincial) visa (Subclass 489).
These occupations include:
- Human Resource Advisor
- Procurement Manager
- Dental Hygienist
- Dental Technician
- Financial Institution Branch Manager
- Pathology Collector
- Policy Analyst
- Vocational Education Teacher
- Multimedia Designer
- Safety Inspector
This new change is indeed being perceived optimistically by the Human Resource Advisors as they were completely ignored from applying for Permanent Residence (PR) visa of Australia previously.
Moreover, the addition of occupations such as Policy Analyst will definitely increase the scope of employment for individuals working in the field of academics, research and policy analysis.
The Skilled Regional (Provisional) visa (Subclass 489) is a type of temporary-residence visa streams that allows the applicant to stay in Australia for a duration of four years. It is therefore the most prominent gateways to permanent residency visa to Australia, that is the Skilled Regional Visa (Subclass 887). For being able to apply for the Skilled Regional Visa (Subclass 887), the candidate is required to live in Australia or any of in a particular state of Australia for minimum 2 years and should hold one-year job experience particularly in the regional parts of Australia.
With visa regulations becoming much easier, especially for regional areas across Australia, this is the best time to apply for the Australia Permanent Residency (PR) visa.
