Skilled Migration Occupation List Traffic Light Bulletin Release – March 2020 Review
The Department of Employment has released their ‘Traffic Light Bulletin’ which proposes further changes to the occupation lists for the purposes of sponsorship. Stakeholders have been invited to provide written feedback and Ajuria Lawyers is participating in this process. Some of the key proposals are:
- ROL (Regional Occupation List) – not sponsorable in major metropolitan areas, Sydney, Melbourne and Brisbane
- STSOL (Short Term Skills Occupation List) – generally 2 year visa, has no pathway to permanent residency under the standard TSS program
- MLTSSL (Medium to Long Term Occupation List) – generally 4 year visa, has pathway to permanent residency under the standard TSS program
We will continue to provide regular updates on the occupation lists as they occur.
