Immigration SA will publish a revised State Nominated Occupation List (SNOL) on 4 July 2016 (any time from 12pm), after which new applications can be submitted. Please note that some occupations will have revised English and work experience requirements.
The application system will be closed at 9am on 30 June 2016. Applications that have not been submitted and paid by this time (including saved applications) will be deleted.
Immigration SA will require offshore applicants for ICT occupations that appear on the SNOL to have a minimum of 70 points (including state nomination points) on the Department of Immigration and Border Protection points test. This will apply to any occupation involving a skills assessment from the Australian Computer Society (ACS).
The minimum points requirement will initially be set at 70 points (including state nomination points) and then may be reduced to 65 points and then 60 points depending on the number of applications received. Immigration SA will provide notice of seven (7) calendar days advising of any changes to the points required.
A small number of occupations appearing on the SNOL and Supplementary Skilled List will only be available for a 489 provisional visa. Applicants should ensure that they are aware of the work and residency requirements of this visa before applying.
