[Expert Tip] Your Ultimate Guide to 17th Jan Skilled Occupation List Changes

Just this morning, Department of Immigration (now called Department of Home Affairs) released another round of changes to the skilled migration programs. Given the popularity of our Ultimate Guide last July, we have updated this to include the last round of changes.

What is the Ultimate Guide?

During the Department's sweeping changes last year, instead of the occupation lists being simplified, it became more complicated than ever. "Which occupation list do I use?", "which visas can I apply for?", such simple questions became SO HARD to answer.

To save you the stress, we combined all 7 occupation lists and 4 different legislative instruments into 1 simplified, easy-to-understand comparison table. Thus became the Ultimate-Guide to occupation list changes, the only list you'll need.


1. Find your relevant occupation (or the occupations you are interested in)
