Temporary Visa For Australia Immigration

If you are looking to move to Australia to explore opportunities in the occupation of Industrial, Mechanical, and Production Engineer, you really apply fast as limited applications are remaining. Australia Immigration is a dream of most of the skilled professionals and workers across the world. The reasons for the same are multiple professional opportunities, along with incredible infrastructure, work environment, and standards of living offered by the Kangaroo Land to the foreign workers.

You ask any overseas worker living in Australia and you will find the similar answers. You may also avail all these facilities in Australia provided you show some concern and prepare well for immigration to Australia.

197 Positions left in the SOL for the occupation of Industrial, Mechanical, and Production Engineer

The Skilled Occupation List of Australia contains the high demand occupations across the country, for which highly skilled and talented people from overseas can apply. But each SOL listed occupation often has a limit too, which is called occupation ceiling value. The occupation of Industrial, Mechanical, and Production Engineer had an occupation ceiling limit of 1539 in SOL for 2016-17, which means only 1539 applications can be accepted for this occupation in the year 2016-17. However, out of the total 1539 applications quota, 1342 applications are already applied by the applicants under this category. Hence, now only 197 applications are left to apply.

(Note: With effect from April 19, 2017, Australian Government has replaced the old Occupation lists, i.e. SOL & CSOL with new Skilled Occupation lists, i.e. Medium and Long-term Strategic Skills List (MLTSSL) & Short-term Skilled Occupation List (STSOL).

The visa applicants, eligible to nominate an occupation from STSOL, also have access to some occupations in MLTSSL. Hence, both the lists (STSOL & MLTSSL) have been combined to form a new Combined List of Eligible Skilled Occupations and hence, there is no separate STSOL list.)

Hurry! You may not get a chance again to apply under the given occupation

If you are interested in moving to Australia to get employed under the above-mentioned occupation, you must hurry, as if the applications are closed for the year, you may or may not be able to apply for the occupation of Industrial, Mechanical, and Production Engineer in future.

The Skilled Occupation List is based on the demand for certain occupations in the country. However, if the demand of a particular occupation is met, and there is no further demand next year, it doesn’t come in the list for next year. So, based on the demand of Industrial, Mechanical, and Production Engineer, Australian government may decide to remove this occupation from Skilled Occupation List, diminishing your chances of applying for the skilled visa under the given occupation.
