VIC temporarily closes skilled applications for engineering & building occupations
Applications for engineering and building occupations on the Visa Nomination Occupation List for Victoria will not be accepted from 16 October 2017 to 12 January 2018 due to the large volume of applications received.
Applicants who have an offer of employment in Victoria in their nominated occupation or meet the streamlined PhD or 457 pathways are not affected by this closure and may still apply during this time. Please note that we have also increased the work experience requirements and adjusted required specialisations in some occupations.
See the Visa Nomination Occupation List for Victoria for more information.
