We are happy to share some big news with you from WA State Government today with regards to the WASMOL, with over 110 new occupations being added to a new ‘Schedule 2’. See below for the information:
“New requirements and expanded occupation list for General stream
The Western Australian skilled migration occupation list (WASMOL), which lists occupations available for WA State nomination through the General stream, has expanded to include a Schedule 1 and Schedule 2.
Updated requirements are available for applicants for the General stream with an occupation listed on Schedule 2.
This includes the following:
• meet the Department of Home Affairs criteria for the intended visa subclass;
• have at least ‘competent’ English; and
• have a 12 month full time employment contract in Western Australia in the nominated (or closely related) occupation.
The existing requirements for the General stream will apply to applicants with an occupation on the WASMOL Schedule 1. The Graduate stream requirements remain unchanged.”

There are also some other requirements around ‘living in Australia’ and if living in a state other than WA, the need to ‘demonstrate sufficient settlement funds’.
