With the current global uncertainties, many are faced with challenging decisions to make in life. Questions like – How’s my family’s future with this kind of situation?

Truth be told, the best time to migrate to Australia was way back years ago, when the immigration policies was not as tough as it is today. Following the immigration changes implemented prior to the 2017-18 fiscal year on the 1st July 2017, many would-be migrants have been affected, especially those occupations that were removed from the occupation lists.
However, despite the changes, Australia’s permanent migration programme for the fiscal year 2017-18 will remain stable at a ceiling of 190,000 intakes. The government has decided not to cut the number of migrant intake for the coming fiscal year in spite of the abolition of the 457 visa and the removal of the 200 occupations from the list.
The Department of Home Affairs has released the updated Skilled Occupation List (SOL) for the year 2016 to 2017.

The SOL list will be applicable for visa application under the following subclasses:
- Skilled Independent Subclass 189
- Skilled Regional Provisional Subclass 489
- and Graduate Temporary Subclass 485
