Occupation ceiling

Occupation ceiling for ICT Business and Systems Analysts (ANZSCO 2611) has been reached and no further invitations will be issued for this occupation for the Skilled – Independent (subclass 189) and Skilled – Regional provisional (subclass 489) until the next financial year.

As there are still high levels of interest from prospective skilled migrants in the following occupations, pro rata arrangements for these occupational groups will continue:

  • Accountants

  • Software and Applications Programmers

Details of the cut-offs for these occupations will continue to be included in the regular invitation round reports.
