In September 2020, the Australian Government introduced new Labour Market Testing

International Trade Obligations do not apply.
As of 1 October 2020, in addition to the previous LMT requirements, discussed below,
employer sponsors must also advertise the nominated position on the Government’s Jobactive

a) the title or a description of the position;
b) the skills or experience required for the position;
c) the qualifications required for the position;
d) the name of the approved sponsor or, if the approved sponsor has engaged a recruitment
agency for the purposes of the LMT, the name of the recruitment agency;
e) the salary for the position or salary range.

b) in print media with national reach in Australia; or
c) radio with national reach in Australia; or
d) if the approved sponsor is an accredited sponsor – on the approved sponsor’s website.
