Changes to the SOL & CSOL from July 1st 2016

Category : Immigration News

As usual there will be changes to the occupations on the lists coming in to effect on July 1st 2016.

There was much speculation about Accountants, but they appear to have escaped being removed from SOL. We will have to wait and see if they have reduced the number of places allocated to them for next year.

For anyone who is in one of the negatively effected occupations, you either need to get invited before July 1st, or consider either looking at state sponsorship, or changing your strategy from skilled migration to employer sponsorship.
