ICT Opportunities Announced in Melbourne area : Migration Bureau

By: Migration Bureau  05-Apr-2012

The Victorian State Government is updating its occupation lists, which detail occupations eligible to apply for state sponsorship. This year, Victoria is seeking to attract up to 6000 skilled migrants and dependants in a range of priority industries. In 2010-11, Victoria attracted more than 4000 skilled migrants and their dependants, providing critical skills and experience to Victorian workplaces and communities.

All occupations on the new lists, including ICT occupations, will be open for sponsorship applications as soon as the lists are published. A new system has also been introduced to provide forewarning of occupations that are attracting a high number of applications and are likely to close before the end of the program year. This advice will be updated on the front page of the Occupation Lists at the start of each month or as required.
