Traffic light bulletin -Proposed changes to the Occupation Lists

Australian immigration has marked quite a number of new changes in the field and has paved the way for more immigrants to land in Australia as a permanent resident. One of the more notable changes is the introduction of the Traffic Light Bulletin, which is due to be released in March 2020.

This is a list of occupations that have been invited or included in the past and the occupations that will be removed/added indefinitely in the future. This list depicts changes to the skilled occupation lists for immigration purposes. A number of changes have been mentioned, including the removal of several trade occupations and adding some related to personal and aged care.

The occupations flagged in red are removed from all occupations lists and included in this list are some of the famous occupations in the past such as hairdressers, massage therapists etc.

Orange occupations are the ones that will move in between the 3 occupation lists as follows:

  • Short-Term Skilled Occupation List (STSOL)
  • Medium and Long-term Strategic Skills List (MLTSSL)
  • Regional Occupation List (ROL)

The green occupations are the ones which are newly added to the lists. Occupations such as Nursing Support Worker and Disabled Carer have been added, provided that there is a mandatory skills assessment.

Furthermore, there is a list of occupations that are not listed in the occupations list, but there may be a chance of them being included in the future. This proposed Traffic Light Bulletin is due to be released in March 2020, and is subject to change.
