  1. DIAC introduces ANZSCO on 1 July 2010: ANZSCO (Australian and New Zealand Standard Classification of Occupations)
  2. George Lombard

    New List of 457 Occupations Announced

    f This is as long as expected but with scope, it would seem, for future expansion below ANZSCO Group Level 3, suggesting that the Labour Agreement pathway hasn't been as successful as hoped, since there are Group Level 4, 5 and 6 occupations at the end. See http://www.comlaw.gov.au/ComLaw/legislation/LegislativeInstrument1.nsf/0/975751D41E27FC88CA25774A0013EC8A/$file/10032LI.pd Cheers, George Lombard
  3. All, My first post in PIO but I'm a silent follower of every post for quite some time. Please view this link http://www.comlaw.gov.au/ComLaw/Legislation/LegislativeInstrument1.nsf/0/EAC98C683DDD004BCA25774A0017BD72/$file/10025LI.pdf This applies to people who applied before 8 February, 2010 and who's application hasn't been finalized yet. But that's ok, not pointing out that. As a IT guy ( with +ve 2231-79 Unix ) I was ( I know lots of like me are out there too ) interested to know how 2231-79 is mapped to ANZSCO. May be ( I'm not too sure and hence seeking experts advise ) this document gives an idea ???? Seems like for people who applied before 8th Feb ASCO 2231-79 is mapped to ANZSCO 261399. I wonder whether this mapping would be the final one. If so, all 2231-79 will be on Schedule 4. Comments ??? thanks tarini
  4. Vetassess has just sent out this important announcement, which, if literally true, suggests that the new SOL is not going to bite immediately and that the DIAC transitional legislation will be humane: RE: Applications for skills assessment received before 1 July 2010 This advice applies to skills assessments received before 1 July 2010 when the Australian and New Zealand Standard Classification of Occupations (ANZSCO) and the new Skilled Occupation List (SOL) will be introduced by the Department of Immigration and Citizenship. It is expected that skills assessments for nominated occupations in the Australian Standard Classification of Occupations (ASCO) will continue to be accepted for migration purposes from 1 July 2010 if the application for the skills assessment was received before 1 July 2010. This is the case even if the skills assessment was finalised after 30 June 2010 and the nominated occupation is not on the new SOL. This is all the information available on this announcement and Monday is a holiday here, but I'm sure that clarification will be made on Tuesday. In particular, does this announcement apply only to Vetassess assessed occupations or all occupations? Cheers, George Lombard

    New sol

    hey everyone any ideas on when the new SOL might be out? :jiggy:
  6. Latest news regarding WA SS! "From 9 of March 2010, The State Migration Centre will no longer be able to accept or process sponsorship applications for off-list occupations for the Skilled Sponsored Visa. The Department of Immigration and Citizenship (DIAC) allocated 500 off-list places to Western Australia for the 2009/2010 Project Year and this quota has now been met. A quota of off-list places for the 2010/2011 project year is yet to be confirmed." State Migration Centre ¬Ľ Skilled Migration
  7. Although already posted in another thread, but maybe it is useful when it has an own thread. Skills Australia's "National Workforce Development Strategy" was published yesterday: http://www.skillsaustralia.gov.au/PD...F_strategy.pdf Check page 83 and 84, and the foot-note on page 83. All the occupations or occupation groups are there which the new SOL will include. These occupations are: 1331 Construction managers 1332 Engineering managers 1341 Child care centre managers 1342 Health and welfare services managers 1343 School principals 1344 Other education managers 2211 Accountants(a) 2212 Auditors, company secretaries and corporate treasurers(b) 2221 Financial brokers 2241 Actuaries, mathematicians and statisticians© 2245 Land economists and valuers 2311 Air transport professionals 2312 Marine transport professionals 2321 Architects and landscape architects 2322 Cartographers and surveyors 2326 Urban and regional planners 2331 Chemical and materials engineers 2332 Civil engineering professionals 2333 Electrical engineers 2334 Electronics engineers 2335 Industrial, mechanical and production engineers 2336 Mining engineers 2339 Other engineering professionals 2341 Agricultural and forestry scientists 2346 Medical laboratory scientists 2347 Veterinarians 2393 Teachers of English to speakers of other languages 2411 Early childhood (pre-primary school) teachers 2544 Registered nurses 2611 ICT business and systems analysts 2613 Software and applications programmers 2633 Telecommunications engineering professionals 2711 Barristers(d) 2712 Judicial and other legal professionals(d) 2713 Solicitors(d) 2723 Psychologists 2725 Social workers 3122 Civil engineering draftspersons and technicians 3132 Telecommunications technical specialists 3211 Automotive electricians 3212 Motor mechanics 3221 Metal casting, forging and finishing trades workers 3222 Sheet metal trades workers 3231 Aircraft maintenance engineers 3233 Precision metal trades workers 3241 Panel beaters 3243 Vehicle painters 3311 Bricklayers and stonemasons 3312 Carpenters and joiners 3321 Floor finishers 3322 Painting trades workers 3331 Glaziers 3332 Plasterers 3334 Wall and floor tilers 3341 Plumbers 3411 Electricians 2412 Primary school teachers 2413 Middle school teachers 2414 Secondary school teachers 2415 Special education teachers 2421 University lecturers and tutors 2511 Dieticians 2512 Medical imaging professionals 2514 Optometrists and orthoptists 2515 Pharmacists 2521 Chiropractors and osteopaths 2523 Dental practitioners 2524 Occupational therapists 2525 Physiotherapists 2526 Podiatrists 2527 Speech professionals and audiologists 2531 Generalist medical practitioners 2532 Anaesthetists 2533 Internal medicine specialists 2534 Psychiatrists 2535 Surgeons 2539 Other medical practitioners 2542 Nurse educators and researchers 2543 Nurse managers 3421 Air-conditioning and refrigeration mechanics 3422 Electrical distribution trades workers 3423 Electronics trades workers 3942 Wood machinists and other wood trades workers 3991 Boat builders and shipwrights 3996 Sign writers 4112 Dental hygienists, technicians and therapists 4114 Enrolled and mothercraft nurses 4115 Indigenous health workers 4231 Aged and disabled carers 4233 Nursing support and personal care workers 4412 Fire and emergency workers 4413 Police The codes are not ASCO codes - they are ANZSCO unit group code numbers.

    Occupations for State Sponsorships

    /occupations for state sponsorship this chart is to give us an idea of whats what for all states, however the time scale shown is pre- Sep 2009
  9. Hello everyone, I'm desperately searching for understanding/clarification!!! Please help! On the Skilled Occupations List (SOL) form 1121i there is no listing of a Restaurant and Catering Manager. However, I have found the following links that indicate that a Restaurant and Catering Manager IS included in the Skilled Migrants list for the 457 sponsored visa. http://www.immi.gov.au/skilled/skilled-workers/sbs/457occupations.pdf http://www.immi.gov.au/media/publications/pdf/appendices_m_o.pdf http://www.nationalvisas.com.au/employer/eligible457visaoccupations.htm The following link however states "This occupation is not on the Skilled Occupations List" Restaurant and Catering Manager - ASCO 3321-11 I think I need clarification on what a "gazetted subclass 457 occupations" list is. What is a gazetted list vs. the list found on immigration form 1121i?? Can I, as a restaurant and catering manager (in Ireland) be sponsored under the subclass 457 visa (assuming I have a job offer) under that catergory? ASCO code 3321-11 Restaurant and Catering Manager Or is this category for a different type of sponsorship altogether? I would greatly appreciate any assistance/guidance Thanks so much, Janey
  10. Below are links to new Comlaw information on: 1 Which occupations will require a new skills assessment after 1 January 2010, and 2 Which offshore applicants will need to have worked for 12 of the 24 months before the date of the application in the actual nominated occupation. http://www.comlaw.gov.au/ComLa...020AF17?OpenDocument http://www.comlaw.gov.au/ComLa...09143+-+LI+-+JRT.doc http://www.comlaw.gov.au/ComLa...143+-+ES+-+Final.doc No need for offshore applicants to obtain a new skills assessment as far as I can see. Cheers, George Lombard
  11. Dear All. I know there is another post talking about this issue, BUt I am still confused. Which occupations require the recent 12months actual work experience after Jan 2010? All? Trades? My nominated occupation is IEA Electronic Engineer (CSL) Does it affect? Thanks for your advice! Regards, Jessi :wacko::wacko::wacko:

  13. Hi All Vetassess have announced some important changes from 1st January 2010: http://www.vetassess.com.au/download/qualification_assessment/vetassess_announcement_final_with_occ.pdf If you have a degree in psychology, it will no longer be possible to ask Vetassess to say that you are a Zoologist, though one might wonder why in this topsy turvy world of today...... Similarly it will knock out the use of general Orion Training Diplomas in "Business Admin" for those who want to nominate, say, Hotel or Motel Manager. The official excuse is the need to ensure that applicants are "job ready", with qualifications that are relevant to their work experience. It does not take genius to work out that one of the effects will be to reduce the demand for GSM visas. Cheers Gill
  14. I am a high risk country, non csl 176 visa applicant. My nominated occupation is Financial Investment Adviser and I've been affected by the SEP09 changes. A friend of mine has a business in Australia where I could work, but which has nothing to do with my nominated occupation. I wouldn't mine working as a kind of Office manager as long as it helps to speed visa granting. Would DIAC demand that there is a relationship between the Oz business activities and the nominated occupation? Or could the business say for example that they need me given that they need someone they trust and that I fulfill certain conditions that no other employee could fulfill? Thank you very very much for your help.
  15. http://www.migration.sa.gov.au/public/download.jsp?id=6604 Just saw this on SA Immi website. We are still on it thank goodness. Fingers crossed for everyone :biggrin:
  16. Hello, I am looking to apply for state sponsorship from SA but have noticed their online application and eligible occupations are currently offline whilst being updated. Any ideas when new list will be available? or even how ling it has been off for? In the meantime are they accepting paper applications for state sponsorship and if so where can I find the forms? Thank you. Lauren
  17. Of interest to some, I'm sure: [url=http://www.gomatilda.com/news/article.cfm?articleid=570][/url]http://www.gomatilda.com/news/article.cfm?articleid=570 Best regards.

  19. Hi all, Can anyone out there ease my worry a bit? We are applying for NSW State Sponsorship as a financial investment advisor and I am really concerned that there will be changes to wanted occupations before we get ours. My skills assssment is due back the end of next week and our agent has the NSW SS form ready to go once we get it back but I have heard that there are due to be many new changes introduced in May (dont know when). Does anyone know if this is right and if the changes would affect individual state sponsorship? thanks so much Karl

    New ACT Occupations List

    Hi All The Australian Capital Territory have issued a new Occupations list for the skilled sponsored subclass 176 visa. Business and Industry Development - Skilled and Business Migration http://www.business.act.gov.au/__data/assets/excel_doc/0003/94584/ACT_Skills_in_Demand_List_March_09.xls The new ACT List is lengthy. They have stuck to their guns, ignored the new CSL and tradies are still in demand. Thee is a very interesting mix of Professional and Associate Professional occupations in demand in the ACT, too. It does look as if it is "business as usual" in the ACT and in the NT so far. Let us hope that the remaining States exercise their own discretions in similar ways. Best wishes Gill
  21. Queensland has updated its lists of occupations and has now released information about sponsorships for off-the list occupations. Here is the relevant link: Queensland eligible skills (Apologies if this has already been posted about, but I haven't spotted anything.) Cheers, Veronika

    IT MODL Occupations and the CSL

    I'm a bit troubled at suggestions received that people here might have been led to believe that a) you can lose MODL points if the MODL changes after application and b) you can lose your CSL status if the MODL changes after application. Happy to provide the quotes from the legislation which disprove rumour a) and as far as rumour b) is concerned, the ASPC have informed me at a senior level that they're not going to micromanage the list by identifying and removing files after the application has been given priority - evidently they have enough trouble identifying the IT occupation files which ought to go into the CSL in the first place. If people are lodging unnecessary state sponsorship applications then this is going to slow down the processing for everyone, and personally I can't see much to gain by applying for state sponsorship if you're on the CSL, experience already suggests that it's not going to be more than four weeks difference in timing, ie about the time it takes to get a state sponsorship application sorted. Cheers, George Lombard
  23. "Applications with Occupations on the Critical Skills List (CSL):" "Applications are being allocated in date of lodgement order" As taken from the standard email... Whoo hoo! Chris :jiggy:(on the CSL and MODL Lodged Sept 08):jiggy:
  24. Hi all I am currently based in the UK (originally from South Africa) - and altough I plan to stay for another 6 months or so in the UK, I would like to start the process of applying for General Skilled Migration to Aus. Although there is lots of info on the web, I hope someone can maybe give me more information on the following: 1) I have a total of 8 years IT experience - with all 8 years in a listed occupation on the shortage list: 3 years LAN Admin, 2 years C# Software Developer, 3 years with specialization in Data Warehousing. I see mostly 6 years experience is required, but is it in a specific field, or will I be eligible based on above (overall 8 years in 3 different fields of "computing professionals")? 2) There is quite a lot of migration "experts" on the net who wants to sign you up and ask fees after a 5 question "Am I eligible?" questionare. Can someone recommend reputable agents in the UK I can use? (I am most of the time based in Birmingham but travel frequently to London) - even more preferred if they specialize in IT professionals. Thanks in advance. Kind Regards Henry

    State sponsorship occupations

    Does anyone know how I can find out what state will sponsor what occupations? I have been told my current job fits within the 'Office Manager' role, but this means South Australia would be my only choice. Does anyone know if this is definitely the case as ideally wanted Perth! Thanks!:unsure:
