Migration occupations in Demand (MODL) List Australia
The Australian MODL Skilled Migration to Australia component awards points to applicants who have an occupation in demand in Australia. This list changes over time so it is important to understand what the trends might be in the future. The points are awarded when the application is assessed, not when the application is lodged.
The (Skilled) Migration Occupations in Demand List (MODL) below is a list of occupations which have been identified as being in demand in Australia. The MODL list is not to be confused with the Skilled Occupations List (SOL).
* People seeking to migrate to Australia on the basis of their work skills receive points if their nominated occupation is on the MODL list which is current at the time their application is assessed (not when their application is lodged).
* They receive extra points if they have a job offer in their nominated occupation from an organisation that has employed at least 10 people on a full-time basis for the previous two financial years.
* For an occupation in demand, but, with no job offer in Australia - 15 points
* For an occupation in demand, with a job offer (the employer must evidence that they employed no less than 10 people in the previous two financial years) in Australia - 20 points

* Important: If you nominate one of the above specialist computing occupations, you will only be awarded MODL points if your skills assessment from the relevant Australian assessing body – the Australian Computer Society (ACS) states you have met the criteria to be recognised in one of the above specialisations.
Skills assessments provided to successful applicants will state:
* the ASCO Code for Computer Professional not elswhere classified (nec) with the specialisation stated in brackets - for example, 2231-79 (SAP)
* the statement: 'Based on the provided certified documentation, it is my opinion that the applicant has 12 months experience in (name of specialisation, for example, SAP)'.
Note: If you have a skills assessment which only states the ASCO Code for 'Computer Professional nec 2231-79', you are not eligible to be awarded MODL points. A new assessment with the above information will be required if you wish to claim MODL points.
How often does the MODL change?
The MODL is reviewed twice a year to take into consideration existing and emerging skills shortages. This does not mean the list is changed twice a year. Changes only occur if there has been a significant change in labour market trends.
As the MODL may change from time to time, you are advised to check the current MODL at the time you are lodging your visa application.
How are occupation points awarded on the points test?
If your nominated occupation is on MODL either at the time your application is lodged or assessed, you will be eligible for 'occupation in demand/job offer' points on the General Skilled Migration points test. You will receive extra points if you have a job offer from a suitable Australian employer.
What is a 'suitable Australian employer'?
A 'suitable Australian employer' is an employer that has employed at least 10 people on a full-time basis for the previous two (2) financial years.
If you intend to claim points for 'occupation in demand/job offer' you are required to submit documentary evidence that your proposed employer meets these requirements. This evidence should include:
* a letter of offer from your prospective employer on official letterhead of the company which states the full address of the company and any telephone, fax numbers, e-mail and website addresses
* the name and position of the person authorised to sign the employment reference typed or stamped below that person's signature - a reference with an illegible signature will not be accepted
* details of the position you are being offered, the main five duties to be undertaken, and the salary level
* details of the organisation making the job offer, including the number of people it has employed on a full-time basis for the previous two (2) years
The department will make any necessary checks to ensure that the information provided is correct.
Hello katey, i am currently on a 2 year student visa, i did one year masters of medical science, then after
completing my master i got my self enrolled in Bachelors of Nursing. I
got exemption/advance standing in bachelors of nursing, so i only
needed to put in 1 year more to qualify as a registered nurse in
queensland. I just finished my bachelors in nursing, and currently
awaiting my results. I have also applied for registration with the
queensland nursing board. I will be giving my IELTS on 13th december
in brisbane, i was just wondering if i dont score a 7 band in all the
modules, will i still qualify for PR, given i have a offer letter from
PA hospital queensland. I dont have any previous experience as a nurse
in queensland, this will be my first job. My age is currently 28
years. Now the thing thats boggling me is that will i get modl points
since i have an offer letter from PA hospital with no prior experience
in the field of nursing? Secondly are there more points for doing a
bachelors & masters within a time frame of 2 years. Any information
will be great. Thank You!
Only 3 Yr Experience in MODL - Eligible
I have three year exp overall in MODL listed category. Will i be eligible for PR?

I have applied for my state sponsorship in victoria on dec.still now i havent got any reply from them.is this usual or unusual.it would be much appreciated if someone advices me in this issue.
I am totally confused ...
thank you in anticipation

hi frined am doing my diploma in automotive mechanical technology this diploma is in modl list or not if it is there how many points for that course............
pls help me.
According to the DIMC I can only claim these 15 points if I:
• nominate a skilled occupation that appears on the MODL when you apply or
when your application is decided;
• have been employed in that skilled occupation or a closely related skilled
occupation for a period totalling at least 12 months in the 48 months
immediately before lodging your application.
Would studying for a master in accounting (2 years), which is in the MODL, be enough to claim these 15 points? Or would I need to work for 1 year in a job related to accounting?
Than you can claim 15 points.
hi, i just wanna ask if the diploma of laboratory technology is on the list.... is that possible to apply for a PR if the major is not on the list?
