Australia occupation ceiling 2019-2020 released

Australia occupation ceiling

The Australia occupation ceiling 2019-2020, which lists the ceilings for each of the occupations in the Skilled Occupation List Australia, has been released. Australia Occupation Ceiling means the maximum number of skilled immigrants who can immigrate to Australia in a certain career field on a skilled visa.
Every year, thousands of skilled migrants from across the world reach Australia. With Australia occupation ceiling, the country controls the number of skilled workers in a specific career field admitted every year. The system aims to make sure that the Australia skilled migration program is not dominated by a small number of occupations.
The occupation ceilings might be applicable to invitations issued under the independent and skilled regional visas. Once the ceiling is reached, Australia would not issue any further invitations under that particular occupation group in that year. In such circumstances, invitations will be issued to immigration candidates of other occupation groups, even if their ranking is low.
The Australia Occupation Ceiling is not applicable to visa sub-classes such as:

  • State or Territory Nominated
  • Employer-sponsored
  • Business Innovation and Investment

Here is the Australia Occupation Ceiling for the program year 2019-2020:
