SkillSelect Occupation Ceilings

The Department of Immigration and Citizenship has released the latest Occupation Ceilings applicable under SkillSelect for the 2012/13 year.

The information below has been taken, in full and unchanged, from the SkillSelect website.  For more information about K M Visa Services Australia, see About Us.

An occupation ceiling may be applied to invitations issued under the points based skilled migration program. This means there will be a limit on how many EOIs are selected for skilled migration from an occupation group. This ensures that the skilled migration program is not dominated by a small number of occupations.

When this limit is reached, no further invitations for that particular occupation group will be issued for that program year. Invitations would then be issued to other EOIs who have nominated available occupations even if they are lower ranking. For the state and territory nominated visas, a state or territory will not be able to nominate you if your nominated occupation has reached its occupation ceiling.

The below table shows the occupation ceiling for the 2012-2013 program year for each occupation on the skilled occupation lists at a four-digit ANZSCO code unit group.
