Changes in 2016 SOL/CSOL lists explained by a Migration agent

SOL - CSOL list 2015 2016

Hello to all you aspiring migrants to oz. 

As some of you may know, the Australian Department of Immigration and Border Protection has changed their website. Unfortunately this means all the links you could click before no longer work and some information is missing. We hope this new website won’t take too long to be completed.

With respects to the skilled migration list, for this new year there have not been too many major changes to the skilled occupation list. The ones that have occurred are:

Occupations removed

• Urban and Regional Planner   232611

• Dental Specialist   252311

• Dentist   252312 

 

Occupations added

• Panelbeater   324111

• Cabinetmaker  394111

Some other occupations such as accountant and IT are still in the main list. This means new candidates could apply and get residency under the Skilled Independent Visa.

The new skilled occupation list (SOL) and consolidated occupation list (CSOL) can be found by clicking on the links below. There is also a brief overview of what each list means:

If you have an occupation on the main skilled occupation list, then providing you meet skills assessment requirements and the points necessary, you can apply for independent residency to Australia. This is the most important list in the skilled migration program.

  • Consolidated Skilled Occupation List (click here)

The consolidated skilled occupation list is another important list. If you have an occupation on this list, then you may be eligible for state sponsorship (each state chooses occupations from this list), temporary employer sponsorship (457), research and trainee visas (402) or permanent employer sponsorship (186). 

As per our post last week, there have also been some changes to visa prices and to find out more, click here

    Hi

    I have got through in skills assessment from vetassess for nominated occupation as facilities manager. few months before the availability was medium in SA. I have filed my EOI on March 3rd, it was showing low availability. Now few days back I noticed that special conditions apply. I am worried that whether would be difficult to get my EOI eventhough I got through in skills assessment & pte overall 68. Also please advise even if I get the invite, whether will they accept to lodge my PR.

      Dear Tee

      It’d be better to have an appointment with one of our migration agents, as you might have different options.

      If you are still interested, please send us an email to promotions@emsaus.com and we will help you organise everything.

      Thank you!
