Hi,

My occupation is on CSOL list, does it make me still eligible to file for immigration.
What is the difference in SOL and CSOL list?

SOL is for entire Australia. CSOL is for state sponsored occupations.

If your job code is in SOL, you can apply for 189 PR directly. if your job is in CSOL, you need to find which state sponsors your job and get it nominated by them

What does this mean?

Does it that being in CSOL, I can't file for direct PR.

you can file for PR but you need the state which is in need of your skill to approve your application and nominate you for PR

You can apply for PR but you would have to spend the initial two years in the state that sponsored you. check out 190 on the immigration site.

CSOL is also for employer sponsored PR applications too along with 457 visas and training visas.
