1.22 new occupations have been added to the PMSOL list, accounting/ICT/engineering is good!
This week, skilled immigrants ushered in the new fiscal year's heavy benefits. PMSOL's list of shortage occupations will significantly increase 22 occupations, all of which are common and popular immigration occupations. Although the original intention of PMSOL was to only be used for employer guarantees, in the subsequent actual use, we found that in addition to employer guarantees, in visa processing, exemption from entry, state guarantee list setting, and state guarantee review, all occupations on the list are in short supply. More or less advantages can be said to be a comprehensive priority. The specific 22 occupations added are:
Accountant (general) (22111)
Accountant (Taxation) (221113)
Accountant (Management) (221112)
External auditor (221213)

This news is indeed very good news for many accounting students and other majors. It’s really been a long time since I saw any good news about accounting! Of course, the most important thing we need to see is the specific next fiscal year, the immigration bureau, and each state, whether there will be corresponding supporting policies to support these professional immigration applicants, such as increasing the number of invitations for these majors by 189, such as the state expanding state guarantees List of invited occupations, etc.
2. In the new fiscal year, most visa fees will increase by 1.75%, and AAT and naturalization application fees will increase significantly
As the new fiscal year approaches, the Immigration Bureau has increased visa fees. Except for the last fiscal year due to the epidemic, the annual increase in visa fees is a common practice. This year, most visa categories have been increased by 1.75%, and investment immigration (except 188E) has been increased. This is an increase of 13.095%. After the price increase, the main application fees for some common visa categories are as follows:
189 independent skilled immigrants are now $4045, and $4115 in the new fiscal year
The 190/491 category is now $4045, and $4115 in the new fiscal year
820/309 spouse immigration is $7715, the new fiscal year is $7850
500 student visa is now $620 , and the new fiscal year is $630
485 visa is now $1650, the new fiscal year is $1680
It may be prepared in advance for the increase in the visa fee for the fiscal year. The Immigration Bureau has suspended BPAY. If payment is made through a credit card, there is still an additional fee of 1.4%. If everyone wants to lock in the price in the new fiscal year, hurry up in the last few days. The date of implementation of the new price is July 1st.
In addition, the price increase is even more exaggerated is the AAT appeal fee and the naturalization application fee. The AAT application fee has increased from 2021.6.26 to 3000 Australian dollars, which was 1764 before, which is an increase of 70%! Although the naturalization application fee was not high (285 Australian dollars), this time the increase has reached 72%. Starting from 7.1, the fee will rise to 490 Australian dollars.
