2. Employer Nominated – For employers to sponsor approved, skilled workers

3. Regional Skilled - For employers operating in regional and low population growth areas of Australia, who want to sponsor skilled workers to fill skilled vacancies in their business.

4. Sponsored Skilled - For state and territory government bodies to address specific skill shortages and local labour market needs in various regions of Australia

5. General Skilled – Based on a points score system and stringent criteria, allows individuals to work independently without requiring sponsorship
