2017 to 2018 list for the immigration intake program for Australia

Australia has announced the new skilled occupation list for the immigration intake program for the year 2017-18. The new occupation list takes effect on Saturday, 1st July 2017.

Applicants for General Skilled Migrationare required to nominate an eligible occupation from the Medium and Long-term Strategic Skills List.

Applicants for the following visas can nominate an occupation from the MLTSL

  • Subclass 189 (SkilledIndependent) visas; and
  • Subclass 489 (SkilledRegional (Provisional)) visas by applicants who are not nominated by a State or Territory government agency; and
  • Subclass 485 (Temporary Graduate) visas.
  • The new MLTSSL has 178 occupations that can be nominated for skilled migration to Australia.

Each year, the Department of Education and Training advises the Minister for Immigration and Border Protection on the composition of the skilled occupation list.

The suitability of occupations for inclusion on the SOL is assessed through a two-step process. The first step involves identifying occupations that are most susceptible to supply constraints and are likely to warrant government intervention to address these constraints.

Those applying for Skilled Nominated Subclass 190 visa, Skilled Regional Provisional Subclass 489 visa (state nominated), Employer Nomination Scheme Subclass 186 visa, Temporary worker (Skilled) Subclass 457 visa and Training Subclass 407 visa- Occupational Training Stream must nominate an occupation on the STSOL.
