Spot the error

As we all know, inconsistencies, ambiguities, typos and other mistakes are common on the Australia skilled migration program. The truth is that these errors happen more often than it should and they come from official sources and Australian government websites. From an applicant point of view, these errors only add surplus complexity making the visa process very difficult to follow and inconsistent.

The below table contains some of the inconsistencies encountered in official sources. The information provided on these websites may be wrong, contradictory or inaccurate.

This list is work-in-progress being continually reviewed and updated.

Dear Sir/Madam,

In the DIBP Website stated the Mining Engineer (excluding Petroleum) with the anzaco code of 233611 move back to Medium and Long-term Strategic Skills List(MLTSSL). It was in Short-term Skilled Occupation List (STSOL). Is that correct? You can check in the link below:

You stated in you website that it is not in neither lists anymore. Could you please confirm which one is correct?

If it is back to MLTSSL, now is it eligible for “Skilled Independent visa (subclass 189)”? You stated it is not eligible for this visa?

Hello admin,
First of all let me thank you for most amazing service given by you. My occupation 312212 ( Civil Eng Technician) was restricted to apply for 190 visa since last legislative instrument. Will there be any chance like reintroducing the same occupation in to 190 visa category in coming month? Or will it be completely removed even from 189 visa?
Thank you.


My occupation is removed from csol list recently
Any chance to add 133312 wholesaler in July 2017 list

Hello, I just checked on this site yesterday and the occupation of ‘Occupational Heath and Safety Adviser’ (ANZSCO Code 251312) was appearing in SOL with 95% availability. However, in today’s SOL release, it is completely out of SOL. Can you kindly confirm this? Regards.

You have a mistake in this profession WELFARE CENTRE MANAGER; it’s written this job requires at least 5 years of experience to be eligible. However, the assessing authority requires only one year of experience.
