DIAC has released the new occupations list that will apply to Subclass 457 and Subclass 442 applications.
The list of occupations that may be nominated can be accessed here.
This list has two Schedules.
Subclass 457 occupations must be nominated from Schedule 1 only.
Subclass 442 occupations may be nominated from both Schedule 1 and Schedule 2.
The occupations listed are unchanged from the previous list. The only difference is that they are now referenced to ANZSCO rather than ASCO.
For further information on ANZSCO please refer to our article on "Changeover from ASCO to ANZSCO from 1 July 2010".
