Migrate To Australia – 2018 Skilled Occupation Lists Update

The Department of Home Affairs (DHA) released an update regarding Australia’s Skilled Occupation List, following the -six-monthly update of the lists of eligible skilled occupations. These changes with the Skilled Visa program will take effect on 17 January 2018.

In line with the early changes in 2018, the DHA is working on the development of a new regional occupation list. This is to follow the introduction of the new Temporary Skills Shortage (TSS) visa in March 2018.
