These in-demand occupations see no applications for Australian PR

One of the most sought-after destinations across the world is Australia. Every year thousands of people try their luck to migrate down under.

Many occupations on the Skilled Occupation List of Australia receive a massive number of applications. Yet, there are certain occupations which find absolutely no takers.

Australia has a quota of about 190,000 for Permanent Residency Visas. 70% of the same is reserved for Skilled Migrants.

Applicants need to nominate an occupation on the Skilled Occupation List while applying for Australian PR. Certain occupations like IT and Accountants are so popular that they receive a high volume of applications. The Dept. of Home Affairs had to introduce pro-rata arrangements to handle the volume of applications. On the other hand, there were many occupations which did not get a single invite in the last financial year.

Out of the 73 occupations on the Subclass 189 list, 6 did not receive a single invite in 2017-2018. These were:

  1. Wall and floor tillers
  2. Automotive electricians
  3. Electrical distribution trade workers
  4. Boat builders and shipwrights
  5. Precision metal trade workers
  6. Livestock farmers

These 6 occupations account for 9,603 visa places, as per SBS.

The below occupations received just 1 invite in 2017-2018:

  1. Sheet metal trade workers
  2. Cabinetmakers
  3. Glaziers
  4. Panel beaters
  5. Barristers
  6. Health diagnostic and promotion professionals

These occupations occupy 5,300 visa places.

In order to qualify for the Subclass 189 visa, applicants need relatively higher levels of English proficiency. They also need to have the appropriate educational qualifications and work experience.

Most applicants in trade occupations are not able to meet the requirements. They do not have the necessary proficiency in English to even qualify. Such applicants prefer a sponsored visa as that helps them get additional points to meet the necessary requirements.
