Some engineering occupations removed in Queensland

Occupations of Civil, Electrical and Mechanical Engineers removed from all the Queensland Skilled Occupation Lists on 24 October 2018.

The Business & Skilled Migration Queensland’s webpage includes the following:

Civil Engineer (233211), Electrical Engineer (233311) and Mechanical Engineer (233512) will be removed from all the Queensland Skilled Occupation Lists (QSOLs) on 24 October 2018 as BSMQ has received many expressions of interest for these occupations and has filled the quota.

If you have not received an invitation by today, BSMQ is no longer able to issue any new invitations.

BSMQ may open these occupations later if the current invitees do not respond in the required time frame. If this happens, information will be posted to this page.
