The changes to the existing skilled occupation lists of Australia are scheduled to occur in March 2020. However, the changes indicated via traffic light signals at now are indicative only, i.e. proposed and not confirm at now. The changes includes the removal or down-grading of certain trades' occupations, and the inclusion of occupations related to personal and aged care.
