Posted on March 1, 2019

The Australian state, Victoria is making changes to its State Nomination List. According to the statements of the Dept. of Job, Precincts, and Regions in Victoria, it has been stated that the state occupation list is being reviewed to ensure whether the occupations are aligned based on Victoria’s labour market needs or not.

The Australian occupation list which is being used presently was released in the month of July 2018. This is now being reviewed for changes. Also, the Dept. of Victoria has issued a draft list for providing a report if the concern parties are having any.

The current draft list is representing nearly 80 occupations.  Only 31 occupations from the previous list have been included, and an addition of 13 occupations has been done to the previous list.

  • The occupations which are expected to be added in the Victoria Skill Occupation list are:
Sales ManagerFinance manager
Marketing ManagerAdvertising Manager
Cafe or Restaurant ManagerMechanical Engineer
Public Relations ProfessionalAccountant

This might bring a great advantage for the candidates belonging to these occupations to apply for Australia Immigration.

  • The occupations which may be considered for exclusion from the draft set by the Victoria government are:

This feedback is still an assumption as stated by the SBS News. The final report of the Draft is still in process by the Victoria state Department to finalize. However, the report along with the updated occupation list is likely to be released by the mid-2019.
