    just to let you know I found that there has been a delay on the new 2010 SOL list until sometime in may.


    This is from the Australian visa bureau:

    30 April 2010

    New Australian Skilled Occupation List (SOL) announcement delayed by DIAC


    The Australian Department of Immgiration and Citizenship (DIAC) had previously stated that a new Skilled Occupation List (SOL) would be announced by 30 April, 2010, but this has now been delayed until May.


    The announcement of the new Australian SOL has been delayed by DIAC


    Upon the announcement of the most recent wave of Australian visa changes, it was announced that the Australian government would be replacing the current Skilled Occupation List with "a more targeted list of occupations to better meet the medium and long-term future skill needs of the Australian economy."

    DIAC stated that "it is expected that the new SOL will be announced by 30 April 2010 and placed on the Department of Immigration and Citizenship (DIAC) website and take effect from mid-2010." However, this 30 April deadline has now been missed, with the following updated posted on DIAC's website:

    "Update on announcement of New Skilled Occupations List

    The Government is considering the report from Skills Australia containing their Skilled Occupation List. An announcement and publication of the new Skilled Occupation List for Migration purposes will be made in May."

    There has been no comment from DIAC regarding whether the delay of the SOL's announcement will also delay its previously announced mid-2010 introduction.


    Hope this is helpful (or not for those of us waiting to find out what visa we can apply for)
