Important Update regarding Skilled occupation lists

Skilled occupation lists have changed several times recently. Certain occupations have been added, removed and re-added to several occupation lists. There is no longer one single MLTSSL or STSOL list, different lists apply for each visa subclass. For example, an occupation may appear on an MLTSSL list for one visa subclass however not for another. In addition, specific additional requirements now apply to many occupations.

More than ever before requirements and processes to obtain a visa have become more confusing for applicants. To ensure you obtain precise information for your specific situation based on updated migration laws please arrange a full migration assessment with one of our Immigration Specialists.

Find out about what a full migration assessment involves.

We look forward to assisting you.
