Every year, there are changes made, in the Short Term Skilled Occupation List (STSOL), for every province in July 2018. The candidate gets the right, to choose an occupation which makes him eligible, for immigration here in a province or territory.
There are 10 provinces in Australia, which are Tasmania, Victoria, South Australia, Northern Territory, Australian Capital Territory, New South Wales and Western Australia. The candidates can choose any one of these regions, for immigration by selecting any one of the professions which have a dire requirement for labour.
When you immigrate under any one of these occupations-in demand lists, you will have sure-shot chances of getting a job.
From time to time, the government also removes professions which are in short demand here to not so in demand. So, a candidate has to know when a profession requires some manpower urgently in some province or territory to become eligible for it.
For example, in 2017 only, the government here removed many occupations amounting to 200, from the MLTSSL. Apart from the provinces and territories choosing, candidates for the PR, the government also selects candidates based on occupations which have been indicated in MLTSSL as per the 189 visa. Also, 24 more occupations previously listed in STSOL are only relevant for the grant of the 489 visa.
As per the changes made in the occupation lists, now alterations are going to be implemented in them every 6 months. These changes will depend on the proof provided by the labour market of Australia.
The Employment Department of Australia PR will make sure that the changes in these lists are implemented after consulting with the Department Of Home Affairs.
