Your Chance To Migrate To Australia. New Occupation List For 2017-18 Announced

Australia visa

Australia has announced the new skilled occupation list for the immigration intake program for the year 2017-18.

Australia announced the new skilled occupation list for the 2017-18 immigration program. The new occupation list took effect on the 1st of July 2017.

Applicants for General Skilled Migration must nominate an eligible occupation from the Medium and Long-term Strategic Skills List. 

Applicants for the visas listed below can nominate an occupation from the Medium and Long-term Strategic Skills List

Subclass 189 (Skilled—Independent) visas; and

Subclass 489 (Skilled—Regional (Provisional)) visas by applicants who are not nominated by a State or Territory government agency; and

Subclass 485 (Temporary Graduate) visas.

The new MLTSSL has 178 occupations that can be nominated for skilled migration to Australia.

Each year, the Department of Education and Training advises the Minister for Immigration and Border Protection on the composition of the skilled occupation list.

The suitability of occupations for inclusion on the SOL is assessed through a two-step process. The first step involves identifying occupations that are most susceptible to supply constraints and are likely to warrant government intervention to address these constraints.

The second step involves assessing the medium to long-term skill needed by the Australian economy for each occupation indicated above, to see if the occupation would benefit from skilled migration.

12 occupations have been removed from the list of eligible skilled occupations, nine of these were eligible for 457 and 186 visas on 19 April 2017.

A number of occupations have been added to the lists for certain visa programmes and some additional occupations have moved between the STSOL to the MLTSSL.

The Short-term Skilled Occupation List  (STSOL) replaced the Consolidated Skilled Occupation List in April 2017.

For the first time, visa fees will be indexed annually in line with the forecast consumer price index.

Applicants for Skilled Nominated Subclass 190 visa, Skilled Regional Provisional Subclass 489 visa (state nominated), Employer Nomination Scheme Subclass 186 visa, Temporary worker (Skilled) Subclass 457 visa and Training Subclass 407 visa- Occupational Training Stream must nominate an occupation on the STSOL.
