Possible Changes to the Skilled and 457 occupation lists from 1 January 2018 including removal of Hair or Beauty Salon Manager and Recruitment Consultant but adding University Tutor, Psychotherapist and some Real Estate occupations

Possible Changes to the Skilled and 457 occupation lists from 1 January 2018 including removal of Hair or Beauty Salon Manager and Recruitment Consultant but adding University Tutor, Psychotherapist and some Real Estate occupations
The Australian Government on 17 November released the following proposed changes for comment:

“The Department of Employment is responsible for undertaking a regular review of the Short-term Skilled Occupation List (STSOL) and Medium and Long-term Strategic Skills List (MLTSSL). These occupation lists are used for skilled migration to meet short and medium/long term needs for the Australian economy.

This page provides the list of occupations in the traffic light bulletin that are under consideration for a proposed change in their status on the STSOL and MLTSSL.”

The occupations listed for changes are:

Comments from Principal Migration Agent and Lawyer Chris Johnston

Changes have been the biggest feature of Australian Immigration policy in 2017 and it looks likely to continue into 2018, with these possible changes.

The biggest loser is likely to be Recruitment Consultants, because they are quite a popular occupation.

Of the occupations looking to return to the lists, the one most likely to have big numbers of applicants is the occupation of University Tutor.

Please note that the changes quoted are speculative and we will bring you further updates once the changes are confirmed.

Of course these proposed changes for January 2018 are only small fine tuning compared to the major changes the Federal Government has planned for March 2018.  The March 2018 changes will include:
  • Abolition of the 457 and replacement with the TSS visa.
  • Major changes to RSMS list, which could be much shorter.
  • TSMIT to apply to RSMS
