Changes to Occupation lists in 2018

Changes to Occupation lists in 2018

A number of changes were made to the Medium and Long-term Strategic Skills List (MLTSSL) and the Short-term Skilled Occupation List (STSOL) in April and July 2017.


The Medium and Long-Term Strategic Skill List (MLTSSL) is likely to remain the same

The STSOL which is a list of occupations nominated for temporary and short-term visas is likely to see some changes.

Some of the occupations flagged for removal from the Short-term Skilled Occupation List are:

  • Accommodation and Hospitality manager
  • Hair or Beauty Salon Manager
  • Recruitment Consultant
  • Building Associate

The following occupations MAY be added to the list:

  • University Tutor
  • Psychotherapist
  • Property Manager
  • Real Estate Agent
  • Real Estate Representative

It is also likely that Skilled Occupations List will include Airline Pilots in 2018 to address the shortage of pilots in Australia.

Following lobbying from the peak body for regional airlines, it’s been reported that the Skilled Occupations List will be revised to allow foreign pilots to come to the country on a 2 year work visa.
