The Australian Immigration department released occupation ceilings for the year 2019-20 skilled migration programs. Applicants applying through skilled migration programs check their occupation listed on Skilled Occupation List (SOL). This list currently has more than 200 occupations listed and is updated regularly by the Department of Home Affairs (DoHA).
Occupational Ceiling is defined as the limit to the number of ‘Expression of Interest’ (EOI) or invites issued from an occupation group. The ceiling determines that the skilled migration program is not dominated by small number of occupations.
When the occupation reaches its ceiling limit then no particular invitations are issued for that particular occupation and program for the year. Invitations are then allocated to the migrants in other occupation groups even they have less ranking score.
The occupational ceiling plays an important role in providing the applicants an insight about the most in-demand occupations. There are some occupations which have higher ceiling while others have low occupational ceiling.
The government has fixed occupational ceiling for registered nurses at more than 17,000. For electricians, carpenters, Secondary school teachers and software programmers it is more than 8,000. Whereas, music professionals, economists and cartographers it is fixed at 1000.
The ceiling shows the occupations that are mostly in-demand and required in Australia labour market.
Australia has reduced its migration program for 2019-20 but this is not reflected in the ceilings announced. The numbers are a ceiling and do not mean that these many invitations will be given.
It is important to note that Occupational Ceilings do not apply to Australia Visa 190 –State or Territory and Employer Sponsored or Business Innovation and Investment visa subclasses.

This is in regard to my journey with Aptechvisa Services. I have experienced here were so far better and I already recommended my multiple friends to them because I can trust their words. I got Aptech visa reference through one of my best friend and today I am in Canada and this all happened just because of Aptech visa.
This is a time to appreciate the performance of Aptech visa. True, Genuine, professional and what not, this is the immigration consultancy to whom we can trust blindly. Due to my age factor I did not score well but more than 400 and this made myself eligible for Ontario and my consultant worked hard in my profile and made it true.
Hope you all are reading my message with Great Spirit. I would rate Aptech 10 out of 10. In between of my application, I have faced a lot of issues in arranging documents but everything went well and there was a continuous support of Aptech which motivated me everything and today I am in Canada, Ontario. Thank you Aptech
Aptech is the best immigration consultant and the staff is of very friendly nature. Since I was there in US, so it was very difficult for me to coordinate with them but they always answered my queries very promptly and meantime, my father was there every time to support me. With the help of Aptech and my father, we got our PR visa for Canada. I am feeling so lucky to be associated with Aptech.
Here we would like to Thank you Aptech visa for all the assistance and help which we have received in our Canada PR visa application throughout the process. They helped me a lot in every manner and it would be an honor if I would say something good about Aptech visa. You guys are really hard working.
Mine was the wonderful journey with Aptech throughout the process. I enjoyed working with them and I would really recommend Aptech to all of you. I have also given a lot of references and in future also will try to refer Aptech to all my known and relatives.
My son has applied for PR visa through Aptech and then he decided to apply for my tourist visa from Aptech only and you can’t believe that I got my visa within 24 hours after applying for the online application. I would really appreciate the work out done by Aptech Global in our applications. Keep working hard guys.
Due to some corrections in my passport, it took more time for me to get the visa but Aptech handled all the things very precisely and smartly. They keep on coordinating with High Commission for my application and did all the conversation on time. Thank you for supporting me.
