The Migration Institute of Australia (MIA) has just posted important information from the Department of Jobs and Small Business regarding a “Traffic Light Bulletin on proposed changes to occupations listed on the Short-Term Skilled Occupation List, the Medium and Long-term Strategic Skills List and the Regional Occupation List. These lists underpin a range of employer-sponsored, points-tested and state-nominated visa programs.” Source MIA.
