What is an Occupations Ceilings?


The Australian Occupations Ceilings is the maximum number of invitations issued under a skill visa subclass for a specific occupation. The occupations ceiling is done to ensure that the migration program is not dominated by a particular set of occupations.

For every financial year, The Department of Immigration and Border Protection sets a limit on the number of invitations they are going to issue through Skill Select program for some limited occupations which are available under skilled migration visa categories.

Occupation ceilings values are based on a percentage of stock employment figures for each operation. The employment figures are provided by the Australian Bureau of Statistics, and it represents the number of people employed in Australia in each occupation.

After every invitation round, the occupational ceiling is published online. This information helps the potential applicants to know about their possible chances to get an invitation for their nominated skilled occupation. Thus, an Occupational Ceilings give a good idea about the changes in the waiting time or minimum pass mark for an EOI invitation for the new program year.

The occupations ceilings list for 2018-2019 is as follows:
