Two occupations closed, and high points required for 3 others.

Immigration have updated their skill select results for April.

They have closed the doors for the 489 in the following occupations:

  • ICT Business and Systems Analysts
  • Accountants
  • Software and Applications Programmers.

They have also updated the points required for these occupations if pursuing a 189:

  • ICT Business and Systems Analysts – 70 points
  • Accountants – 70 points
  • Software and Applications Programmers – 65 points

These changes reflect the high level of competition for the remaining places. We hope for anyone effected that this will go back to normal next year, but everyone is also expecting the amount of places for Accountants to reduce next year, so it’s not certain at this stage.

In related news, the following two occupations have filled their quota’s, so there’s no more invitations this year for:

  • 2212 – Auditors, Company Secretaries and Corporate Treasures
  • 2339 – Other Engineering Professionals
