Australian Skilled Occupation List 2017-2018

Eligible Australian Skilled Occupation List 2017-2018

Prospective migrants earlier this week received the shock-news that Australia have slashed their Skilled Occupation List (SOL) by more than 200 qualify occupations.  This news came hot on the heels of yet another unexpected announcement that the country will also be dropping their 457 skilled migrant visa bringing with it a new visa system and new, stricter, requirements. 

 

But all is not lost and while many occupations are no longer featured on the SOL, there are still many more which have kept their spot!  More than 400 occupations are still in demand in Australia and if you have the right qualifications you could still qualify for an Australian work visa.

 

The new Australian work visa system will see applicants obtaining either a 2-year Short-term visa or a 4-year Long-term work visa.  Each of these visas list on our website as visa programmes that utilise this list can also access some occupations on the Medium and Long-term Strategic Skills List (MLTSSL).

 

Should your occupation be listed below and you are interested in immigrating to Australia speak to your immigration consultant about the specifics and special conditions related to your occupation.
