When it comes to Australian Immigration the first stage is working out your eligibility.
This eligibility is based on several core key criteria such as Occupation, Age, Education, Work Experience and English Language ability, with other secondary criteria affecting only certain applications.
In terms of occupation if you’ve an occupation listed on the Medium & Long Term Strategic Skills List you could be eligible for Skilled Migration on a subclass 189, 190 or 489 visas
If you’ve an occupation on the Short Term Skilled Occupations List you could be eligible for a subclass 190 visa – with options available for 489 in certain circumstances.
Not all occupations are equal however… some are more in demand than others and whilst those with other general occupations aren’t necessarily disadvantaged, those with Hot Occupations can expect a faster Invitation to Apply or find themselves in receipt of a State Nomination relatively quickly.
Every year Australia publish an Occupation Ceiling for most occupations, detailing the maximum number of skilled migrants they will accept under any given occupation.
The higher the demand of the occupation the greater the ceiling, and the faster that ceiling will be filled.
As the Australian economy evolves and grows there are essential skill shortages that migrants with the right skills and abilities can help with. As such, the MLTSSL and STSOL are constantly updated to reflect the most essential needs of the economy.
