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.
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).

Contact Bravo Migration to check if you are eligible for any visas within the General Skilled Migration Program.
Bravo helped my employer and I navigate a tricky situation when the rules suddenly changed for the 457 visa when we were partway through the application preparation process. While it took a while to prepare the application (not Bravo's fault), once we launched the nomination and visa applications they were approved by Australian immigration in just over a month - much faster than I had expected! Thanks so much to the team at Bravo, in particular Angela and Danniel, whose professionalism, helpfulness, friendliness, and honesty helped guide me through this otherwise stressful process so smoothly. I look forward to working with you again soon on the PR application. 🙂
As I have always told you I feel very fortunate to have had you as agent. Big hug and thanks to all Bravo Migration Team for all your help!
Choosing a migration agency is so important for your future! I started working with Bravo in 2007 when I decided to move to Australia with my family. They helped me with all necessary information to follow the right path for the application. I could not apply directly to a permanent visa but Bravo was very professional, giving me options, strategies and helping me to “build” a visa plan. My case was a little more delicate as I got divorced with children but Bravo took care of all documentation in a very organised and objective way. I got a sponsorship 457 visa and later my permanent residence (PR) came through as well: the process was stress-free as Bravo always offered options and showed me the correct ways to apply, keeping us calm and positive. I recommend Bravo for people who consider moving countries seriously and want to find the correct path to the residence.
Thanks for giving us the best news ever! Couldn’t be happier!!! Just would like to take the opportunity to thank everyone from Bravo Migration team for doing such a fantastic job! There’s no words to describe their impeccable professionalism! Also thank you for being so kind and patient.
