As part of the annual SOL review, there are a number of occupations which are ‘flagged’ for possible removal in the future.
Generally, occupations are flagged when there is emerging evidence of excess supply in the labour market. For the 2016–17 SOL, 51 occupations have been flagged.
Although being flagged down not guarantee that the role will be removed, we’d suggest that people looking to emigrate to Australia under one of the occupations below take this as an early ‘heads up’ that your choices may be limited when the 2017-2018 SOL is announced early next year.
