Medium and Long-term Strategic Skills List (MLTSSL) 2018/2019

The Department of Immigration has published the Medium and Long-term Strategic Skills List (MLTSSL) for the next financial year.

 

The financial year in Australia starts on the 1st July.

 

The occupations of Accountants and Chef will remain on the list for another year, and we know this is going to make a lot of people happy.

 

IT Professionals will also be happy as all IT occupations that were on the list have been kept on. That includes ICT Business Analysts, Systems Analysts, Analyst Programmers, Developer Programmers, Software Engineers and Computer Networks and Systems Engineers also remain.

 

Most Engineers have also been kept on the list.

 

Also gone from the list are the technical Dental occupations of Dental Hygienist, Dental Prosthetist, Dental Technician and Dental Therapist.

 

The Department of Immigration has also removed Occupational Health & Safety Adviser, Metallurgist and Environmental Health Officer from the list.

 

New additions to the list this year include: Audiologists, Orthotists/Prothetists and Panelbeaters.

 

BE CAREFUL:

there is a lot of confusion between the MLTSSL and the STSOL

The Department of Immigration released both, but the list used to apply for the most sought-after visa, the Permanent Skilled Independent Visa Subclass 189, is the MLTSSL, and not the STSOL.

 

The STSOL is used to apply for the Permanent Skilled State-Nomination Visa Subclass 190 (if your occupation is also on a State or Territory list) and visas within the Employer Nomination Program, such as the Sponsorship Work Visa (if you have a job offer from an Australian employer).
