The Government is removing the exemption for applicants earning over $180,000 per year for English language and skills assessments for the Employer Nomination Scheme (subclass 186) and Regional Sponsored Migration Scheme (subclass 187).
In implementing this change, the Department will ensure it only affects applications lodged from 1 July.
The removal of the exemption is designed to prevent misuse of the program by individuals inflating their income to avoid having to undertake an English test or a skills assessment.
Applications lodged before 1 July will continue to be assessed on merit, and anyone suspected of inflating their incomes will be subject to further scrutiny in the application process.
VETASSES has updated its website following the 1 July 2017 changes.
Following the changes to the occupation lists, VETASSES advises that it is no longer the assessing authority for the following occupations:
- Acupuncturist (ANZSCO Code 252211)
- Orthotist/ Prosthetist (ANZSCO Code 251912)
- Community Worker (ANZSCO Code 411711)
- Youth Worker (ANZSCO Code 411716)
- Welfare Centre Manager (ANZSCO Code 134214)
Further changes are outlined on the VETASSESS website, including:
- information for applicants whose occupations have been removed from the lists
- TradeSet updates
- cooks and chefs from Nepal, Bangladesh and Pakistan
- closure of the Optional Skills Assessment Service
Tasmania’s skilled migration program is for people wanting to move to the state who have a skill that we need.
Skilled migrants are attracted to Tasmania because of the state’s enviable lifestyle, career opportunities, affordable housing, and reputable schools and world class university.
The Tasmanian Government actively pursues skilled and business migrants in recognition of the significant contribution migrants make to Tasmania’s economy and its cultural diversity.
Prospective skilled migrants can apply to the Department of State Growth for a Tasmanian Government state nomination.
