  • Skilled Regional (Provisional) visa (subclass 489)
  • Skilled Nominated visa (subclass 190)
  • Skilled Regional (Provisional) visa (subclass 489)
  • Temporary Work (Skilled) visa (subclass 457) (maximum visa period available is 2 years)

There were over many occupations removed from the STSOL, click here to see the list of removed occupations.
