Chefs and Cooks Immigration Options Skilled Occupation List
The minister said the removal of these occupations from the Skilled Occupation List (SOL) would not hinder the industry’s ability to target the skilled workers it needs.
‘The removal of the classifications for chefs and cooks from the Skilled Occupation List will not affect the ability of restaurateurs to bring in qualified staff to meet demand in the industry,’ Senator Evans said.
‘We have reformed the skilled migration system to allow employers to target the skills they need in their businesses.
‘Employers can nominate chefs and cooks on 457 visas, employer-sponsored visas and the new State migration plans.’
