2018 Skilled Migration Occupation List Updates

[vc_row][vc_column width=”2/3″][vc_column_text]According to the Department of Jobs and Small Business, there will be yet another change in the Skilled Migration Occupation Lists this coming June-July. Twenty two occupations in the MLTSSL will be “downgraded” to STSOL, and one from the STSOL “upgraded to MLTSSL.


The Department of Jobs and Small Business is responsible for undertaking a regular review of the Short-term Skilled Occupation List (STSOL), the Medium and Long-term Strategic Skills List (MLTSSL) and the Regional Occupation List (ROL). These occupation lists are used for skilled migration to meet the needs of the Australian economy.

The said Department has released in its Traffic Light Bulletin (May 31)–a part of its regular release–containing the list of occupations that are most likely being updated (either being completely removed or moved to the other lists).

The following occupations have been flagged for removal on 1 July 2018.[/vc_column_text][ultimate_info_table color_scheme=”red” package_heading=”Red—Short Term Skilled Occupation List (STSOL) occupations for possible removal”]
