The Department of Home Affairs has released new information about the work-sponsored visa changes which confirms that the skilled occupation lists will also be updated. This is not likely to affect the independent or state nominated migration program, only work-sponsored visas.
Changes will include:
-Some occupations moving between lists
-Changes to which lists can be used for which visas – for ENS the list will be the MLTSSL and for RSMS it will be the MLTSSL plus some extra occupations
-Changes to specific requirements for specific occupation nominations
These changes will NOT affect applications that have already been lodged at the time the changes come into effect. We still don’t know the exact date of the changes but will continue to keep you informed.
