Have your say on Vic’s occupation list

‘This is your chance to have your say on the Victorian Occupation List’ for visa subclasses 190 and 489

The Live in Melbourne’s website includes the following announcement:

Have your say on the review of Victoria’s Visa Nomination Occupation List.  

Victoria’s Skilled and Business Migration Program is responsible for providing visa nomination to high-calibre skilled migrants to live and work in Victoria though the subclass 190 Skilled Nominated (Permanent) visa or in regional Victoria through the subclass 489 Skilled Regional (Provisional) visa. 

The Visa Nomination Occupation List specifies which occupations are eligible for Victorian nomination for the above-mentioned visa types. The content of the list is underpinned by stakeholder consultation and analysis of labour market data.   

 This is your chance to have you say on the Victorian Occupation List, including sharing your:  

  • insights into current and future skills shortages;  
  • experience with recruitment and hiring difficulties;  
  • knowledge of highly specialised skills or experiences; and  
  • variations in skill shortages in regional Victoria.  

Please share this opportunity with others you think have something to contribute to this review. Simply share the consultation link through your newsletter / LinkedIn / website.   

Visit the Engage Victoria website to complete the survey or upload your submission before 18 March 2019.
