Visa For Australia

The people who desperately aspire to move to Australia are astonished to see everyday changing rules and regulations of Australia immigration and visa process.

The trend of stricter immigration rules which started by US President Donald Trump in the beginning of this year, certainly followed by the Australian PM Malcolm Turnbull, in the last couple of months.

Dealing with Australia Immigration Process with new changes

The immigration process of Australia although, is not that difficult, however, it is certainly vast in terms of visa categories and associated guidelines for the understanding of a common person.

(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.)
