SOL List Australia 2019-20
Skilled occupation list Australia is divided into 3 separate parts:
- SOL (Short-term Skilled Occupation List),
- MLTSSL (Medium and Long-term Strategic Skills List) and
- ROL (Regional Occupation List).
The occupation list keeps changing every frequently and it’s not easy to gauge the real-time demand.
It is shown clearly on your SkillSelect profile. Just log in and see the date mentioned there.
Example: Date of Effect (DOE)
The date of effect for Software Engineer was 11/04/2020 6:05 PM (11 April 2020). It is the END date that was considered for 11 July 2020 Australia SkillSelect draw.
Anybody who had achieved a score of 75 before that date and time was invited in 11 July draw. If you reached the 75 points on 22 July 2020, your EOI would not even be considered in this draw.
Let’s say that for ‘Software Engineers’ job, Australia plans to issue about 15000 invitations from July to June. Then, they will divide the 15000 by 12 to reach the number of 1250 per month.
So, they will restrict issuing invitations to the ‘Software Engineers’ category to about 1250 per month. This is just an example to explain pro-rata. An actual number of invitations may be different.
