Several occupations that were closed previously, have now been opened in the Australian Capital Territory.

Are you waiting to apply for a Permanent Residency in Australia, but your occupation isn't on the list? Well, your wait may be over. 

Australian Capital Territory (ACT) has released its updated occupation list, and several occupations that were closed earlier, have now been opened for state nomination. 

The national capital of Australia is offering state nomination to journalists, public relations professionals, sales and marketing professionals, cafe and restaurant managers, management consultants, real estate agents, nurses and chefs among others. Check the updated ACT Occupation List here.

The occupations identified do not relate to a specific job vacancy nor represent a guarantee of a job in a specific occupation. Your success finding employment will depend on the employer requirements, relevant skills and experience and level of English ability. 

In order to obtain a state nomination, applicants are required to have a positive assessment of skills, work experience and educational qualifications from a relevant authority. Details can be found on the official ACT website.
