[NEWS] South Australia: 4th July Changes to Skilled Migration Program


South Australia has made 2 main changes to their skilled migration program - new occupation lists and higher points requirement for ICT occupations. These changes apply to all applications submitted since the system reopened on 4 July 2019.

Here is a summary:


1. Expanded occupation list


2. ICT occupations require 75 points minimum*


Due to a high number of ICT applicants:

  • Instead of needing 65 points, ICT occupations will require a minimum of 75 points (including the +5 points from state nomination)

  • * SA has announced that this may be dropped back to the current levels of 65 points depending on demand

* You are exempt from this higher points requirement, and will only need a minimum of 65 points (including state nomination points), if you are:

  • Currently working in your nominated or closely related occupation in South Australia; or

  • Applying under the international graduate of South Australia provisions
