Immigration Consultant New Delhi
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.
The second step involves assessing the medium to long-term skill needs of the economy for each occupation identified in step one, to determine if the occupation would benefit from skilled migration.
12 occupations have been entirely removed from the list of eligible skilled occupations, nine of these were eligible for 457 and 186 visas on 19 April 2017.
