SkillSelect Update 2017
April 21, 2017

The results of the 29 March SkillSelect round have been published.

The occupational group ICT Business and System Analysts is now full. Accountants and Software and Analyst Programmers are over 99% full, with most other pro-rata occupations likely to be filled by the end of April.
Once these occupations are full, no further invitations can be issued for the Skilled Independent Subclass 189 visa or Skilled Regional (Provisional) Subclass 489 family sponsored stream until 1 July 2017 when the program re-opens.
This will most likely result in a backlog of EOIs in these occupations. Unless occupational ceilings are increased, we can expect minimum points or waiting times for invitations to increase when the program reopens.
New occupational ceilings are due to be published in July 2017, and will be important in understanding how many points will be required in pro rata occupations going forward.

State Nomination Update – Western Australia

Western Australia suspended its state nomination program in March 2017 pending review of the WASMOL.
The WA program is now re-opened but is open only to certain medical practitioners and sonographers.
A revised list is due to be released in late May 2017.
