The following changes have be made to the Australian skilled occupation lists – Medium & Long-term Strategic Skills List (MLTSSL) and Short-term Skilled Occupation List (STSOL), formerly known as the SOL and CSOL respectively. We are afraid that these changes will mean good news for some, and bad news for others. Please read on to view the listed changes.
We have unfortunately received notification today that the Department of Immigration and Border Protection will lower the age limit to 45 years of age for Subclass 186 (Direct Entry Pathway), 189, 190 and 489 (‘General Skilled’) visas on 1 July 2017. The relevant legislative instrument is yet to be released, and therefore we do not know any further detail surrounding this newsflash.
This year 190,000 permanent visas have been allocated for new migrants to make Australia their home.
In addition an uncapped number of various temporary visas are available. To obtain one of these visas in most cases involves a multi-stage application process. Further Details
