[Expert Tip] Your Ultimate Guide to 18th Mar Skilled Occupation List Changes

Here it is! Our popular Ultimate Guide updated to include the most recent 457/TSS/Skilled Migration Program changes that comes into effect 18 March.

What is the Ultimate Guide?

Ever since the CSOL and SOL was removed last year, the occupation lists have become more complicated than ever. "Which occupation list do I use?", "which visas can I apply for?", such simple questions became SO HARD to answer. Now that the 457 has been replaced with the TSS visa, there's also the important question of "Can I actually apply for PR after my TSS visa?".

To save you the stress, we combined all 8 occupation lists and 5 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.
