The government of South Australia has published its list of skills in demand for those wishing to migrate to the Australian state under the General Skilled Migration (GSM) program's sponsored visa categories.

On 01 September 2007, Australia's Department if Immigration and Citizenship (DIAC) enacted significant changes to the GSM, including revisions to their visa categories to make it easier for migrants to choose a subclass that best fits their needs. South Australia has published a list of skilled occupation in demand in keeping with the new changes.

Skilled migrants wishing to settle in South Australia can come under the 'Skilled - Sponsored' and the 'Skilled - Regional Sponsored' visa categories with state sponsorship if the applicant's skills and experience match an occupation on the list. Sponsored visa subclasses require fewer points than Skilled - Independent visa subclasses in the GSM points test.

The Skilled - Sponsored visa subclasses (subclass 176 for those applying outside of Australia and subclass 886 for those applying inside Australia) are permanent visas for skilled migrants. Below is a list of occupations in demand for these categories:
