New Critical Skills List (CSL) Published

The Australian Department of Immigration and Citizenship (DIAC) updated the Critical Skills List this weekend with many computer professionals breathing a huge sigh of relief!

When the DIAC announced changes to the Australian immigration procedures on the 8th February, the Migration Occupations in Demand List became defunct. This left many people with occupations previously in the MODL in the dark about their chances of a successful Australian visa application.

Computer professionals had to have an occupation listed in the MODL in order to qualify for the CSL. With the MODL gone this was now impossible to achieve. Thankfully for many of these IT professionals, their quandary is now over as the CSL includes many computing occupations on the list.

Among the other key industries seeking skilled workers for jobs in Australia are healthcare, engineering, surveyors and fitters.

Important Note:

DIAC hasn’t updated the footer on this document yet. DIAC’s webmaster has been contacted to advise so even though the list suggests it’s from March 2009, it is in fact the most current list.

      You list Fitters as being in the industries seeking skilled workers and that its on the ammended CSL, but only Gasfitter is on there, is this correct, or are fitters in general required?

        Hi Carl

        If Gas fitters is the role listed on the CSL then Gas fitters will be the role specifically being sought.

        Cheers
