Access to additional occupations (special conditions and Supplementary Skilled List) is available if you meet all skilled nomination requirements and are currently working:
- For the last 6 months in a country region of South Australia or the last 12 months in Greater Adelaide in your nominated or closely related occupation (for a minimum 20 hours per week).
Please note: you will still need to meet Immigration SA’s work experience requirement listed under skilled nomination requirement 5（见下面). The qualification you have completed must be included and recognised on your skills assessment. Australian or overseas qualifications are acceptable.
To be considered to be working in a country region of South Australia, you must be employed and residing in an area outside of Greater Adelaide. View the full list of eligible country region postcodes.
Quotas apply to nominations under the currently working in South Australia category. Once this quota is reached, applications under this category may be closed or further requirements may apply.
5. Work experience
5.1 At least one year of skilled work experience in the past three years unless your occupation has a higher work experience requirement. Certain exemptions to this requirement may apply to international graduates of South Australia.

5.4 Where additional work experience is listed for your occupation (for example, 2 or 3 years work experience), you will need to demonstrate that you have this amount of work experience in the field of your nominated occupation. Certain exemptions to this may apply if you are an international graduate of South Australia.
