The government has announced that it will not be changing the STSOL and MLTSSL lists until later this year, due to the number of changes last year which created considerable instability. It was previously announced that changes would be made to the lists on 1 January and 1 July of each year. This announcement provides some certainty to those seeking skilled migration whose occupations might be removed from the lists.
There may be some changes to the lists in March when the new work-sponsored framework comes into effect, but otherwise we can expect the lists to be updated on 1 July 2018.
