Which ICT occupation is best for your Australian Visa Application?
If your occupation is IT (ICT) related and is either on the Skilled Occupation List (SOL) or Consolidated Sponsored Occupation List (CSOL), you may have options for Australian Permanent Resident Visas or Temporary Resident Visas which can lead to Permanent Resident Visas.

The Skills Assessment Authority for most IT or ICT occupations is the Australian Computer Society (ACS). You can only have one active Skills Assessment application at any one time. However once your application is finalised, you can apply for another application with a different IT (ICT) occupation. This may apply to ICT professionals who work across different fields of the ICT industry. If the multiple applications were all positive you can keep all the occupation classifications.

The following 6 occupations are currently (March 2017) on the SOL:

261111 - ICT Business Analysts
261112 - Systems Analysts
261311 - Analyst Programmer
261312 - Developer Programmer
