Occupation Ceilings

We are now adding a new check to provide the Occupation Ceiling information associated to each ANZSCO Unit Group included on the SOL List 2014-15.

Occupations that are not on the SOL List, do not have occupation ceiling:

As we do for each Australian State Nominated Occupation List, the data is daily checked and directly extracted from the DIBP webiste: Australian Government Department of Immigration and Border Protection | SkillSelect | Occupation ceilings - http://www.immi.gov.au/Work/Pages/SkillSelect/SkillSelect.aspx

Occupation Ceilings will be applied to invitations to apply to migrate under the points based skilled visas of the General Skilled Migration program. You will not be invited to apply for one of these visas if your occupation has reached its ceiling.

Occupational ceilings do NOT apply to the following visa subclasses:

  • State or Territory Nominated
  • Employer Sponsored
  • Business Innovation and Investment
