The Australian Government is dedicated to refurbish the skilled migration system. This is done to meet the increasing demand for foreign workers and driving economic growth. The immigration department will review the Skilled Occupation List (SOL) to evaluate the labour market requirements of the country.
Michaela Cash, Minister for Employment and Skills recently announced the review. This will address the concerns of almost 500 jobs listed on the current SOL. It is said that some of the current SOL occupations do not reflect the demand for foreign workers in some industries.
It is important to address these concerns to avoid any hurdles to the continued growth of the Australian economy. The current Skilled Occupation List of Australia was last updated in March 2019. Thus, the review of these occupations is necessary to ensure that there are enough workers to support the 10 year AUD 100 billion infrastructure program announced by the Government.
The skilled migration is an integral part of Australia’s prosperity. Though, it is important for the immigration authorities to select the right foreign workers for the right skill shortages in Australia, as quoted by SBS News.
Australia granted more than 80,000 skilled visas in the last financial year. The IT sector jobs were most in-demand last year. There are certain ICT jobs like Data Scientist are high in-demand but will not be added to SOL because of non-inclusion in the ANZSCO classification. The ANZSCO classifications have not been updated since 2013. The Chief economist of the Committee for Economic Development of Australia says that the outdated ANZSCO classification makes it difficult for employers in the ICT segment to hire the right foreign workers.
To address this problem, Australia has launched the Global Talent Scheme which allows the tech sector to hire the skilled and qualified foreign workers. Though, the new occupations are waiting to be added in the mainstream skilled migration programs.
The review will assess jobs on all three occupations list of Australia- medium and long-term, temporary skilled workers, and regional occupations. The Australian immigration department is introducing new regional visa 491 to attract foreign workers in the regional areas of the country.

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.

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.
