The Department of Jobs and Small Business has announced details of its July 2018 review of the Skilled Migration Lists, and has published a Traffic Light Bulletin on proposed changes to occupations listed on the Short-Term Skilled Occupation List, the Medium and Long-term Strategic Skills List and the Regional Occupation List. These lists underpin a range of employer-sponsored, points-tested and state-nominated visa programs.
Stakeholders are invited to make a submission in relation to any occupation, even if no change is flagged at this time. To make a submission, please visit the Department’s website and see the Submission Guidelines for assistance. Public consultation is open until 20 June 2018.
Please note: the Traffic Light Bulletin is for consultation purposes only. It does not represent a decision of Government. The Government will take into account all stakeholder feedback.
If an occupation does not appear on the Traffic Light Bulletin then no change is proposed to the status of that occupation, although submissions can be made about any occupation.
