IMPACT – HIGH
What is the change? The Australian Government has commenced a review of its skilled occupation lists, a process that will impact applicants for Temporary Skilled Shortage (TSS) visas and company-sponsored applicants for permanent residence under the Employer Nomination Scheme, among others.
What does the change mean? Stakeholders will have the chance to provide input on potential changes to the Short-Term Skilled Occupation List (STSOL), the Medium and Long-Term Strategic Skills List (MLTSSL) and the Regional Occupation List (ROL).
Additional information: The timeline for the review is as follows:
Analysis & Comments: Employers are encouraged to participate in the review, especially if the current skilled migration lists are impacting their ability to recruit and retain foreign talent. Employers may wish to consider (1) occupations that are not on any of the skilled occupation lists that should be included on them; (2) occupations on the ROL that should be moved to the STSOL or MLTSSL and (3) occupations on the STSOL that should be moved to the MLTSSL. The current skilled occupation lists are available on this Department of Home Affairs website. Deloitte is available to work with clients to ensure the current challenges their businesses experiences are represented in the consultation process.
