From the 11 of March 2019 dozens of new occupations are available for applicants of the TSS (482) Visa as well as a number of other visa subclasses.

The Department of Home Affairs announced the change to the skilled occupation lists over the weekend of the 11th. This included the addition of 36 occupations to the Medium and Long-term Strategic Skills List (MLTSSL), the removal of 27 occupations from the Short-term Skilled Occupation List (STSOL) and the addition of 18 occupations to the Regional Occupation List (ROL).

These changes will affect the availability of a number of visas for skilled applicants, from the Temporary Skill Shortage Visa (TSS Visa) Subclass 482 to the 186 and 187 Permanent Residency visas. Subclasses 189, 190, 407, 485 and 489 are also affected.

This is in line with The Department’s roughly annual review of the skilled occupation lists, designed to ensure the jobs available for sponsorship remain relevant to Australia’s needs.

Changes to the three skilled occupation lists are outlined below:
