PROPOSED CHANGES TO OCCUPATION LISTS
The Department of Jobs and Small Business has currently published a Traffic Light Bulletin on proposed changes to occupations listed on the Short-Term Skilled Occupation List, the Medium and Long-term Strategic Skills List and the Regional Occupation List.
If you are planning to apply for Skilled Australian Visas in range of employer-sponsored, points-tested and state-nominated visa programs, you may need to pay a close attention to these possible changes of Occupation Lists.
Where an occupation is removed from the MLTSSL, your visa options will change. If an occupation is removed from the STOL, then you may not be able to make a visa application of any kind.
