Australia: Changes to the occupation lists

Effective 17 January 2018, the Australian authorities have announced changes to their occupation lists.

With regards to short term occupation lists, applicants who are Property Managers, Psychotherapists or Real Estate representatives, will now be eligible to apply for a 457 visa. This will be made available for a visa validity of either two or four years.

Horse Breeders and Management Consultants are two of the newest occupations that are allowed residence and a four year 457 visa.

The occupations that are no longer eligible for the 457 visa include Building Associates and Hair/Beauty Salon Managers.
