Changes to the Australia Skilled Occupation List

by admin,  Jun 7 2013 11:36 AM

The Skilled Occupation List (SOL) will change from 1 July 2013, with five occupations to be removed. The SOL determines which occupations are eligible for independent and family sponsored skilled migration.

The Australia Workforce Productivity Agency decides what future skills will be most needed in Australia.  The goal is to deliver skilled occupations as the needs change.  The changes to the SOL will come into effect for applications lodged on or after 1 July 2013. Ideally if you have a skills assessment in one of the above occupations and are considering an independent skilled application, you should ensure that you lodge prior to 1 July. Most likely these listed occupations below will move to the Schedule 2 category so one can still apply by going through State Sponsorship. If you are wandering if you qualify for Skilled Migration for Australia and would like more info, please contact us at New World Immigration.  Occupations removed from the list as of 1 July 2013 are as follows:

•    Hospital Pharmacist (ANZSCO 251511)
•    Retail Pharmacist (ANZSCO 251513)
•    Aircraft Maintenance Engineer (Avionics) (ANZSCO 323111)
•    Aircraft Maintenance Engineer (Mechanical) (ANZSCO 323112)
•    Aircraft Maintenance Engineer (Structures) (ANZSCO 323113
