Migration Occupations in Demand List (MODL)

Migration Occupations in Demand List

Abolition of the Migration Occupations in Demand List

On 8 February 2010 the Minister for Immigration and Citizenship, Senator Chris Evans, announced the revocation of the MODL from 8th February 2010. This change applies to all GSM applicants except those who, at the date of announcement:

  • hold a Skilled-Graduate (subclass 485) visa, or had a pending subclass 485 visa application and had not yet lodged an application for a provisional or permanent GSM visa and who make an application by 31 December 2012, or
  • have a pending GSM visa application.

This means that points can no longer be claimed for MODL.

Applicants who lodged a GSM application before 8 February 2010 will not be affected by the revocation of the MODL.

The Migration Occupations in Demand List (MODL) lists those occupations and specialisations from within the Skilled Occupation List (SOL) identified by the Department of Employment and Workplace Relations (DEWR) as being in ongoing national shortage.

Priority processing

Previously if your nominated occupation was on the MODL, your General Skilled Migration visa application would receive priority processing.

The MODL was supposed to be reviewed twice a year to take into consideration existing and emerging skills shortages. This did not however mean the list was changed twice a year. Changes only occured if there had been a significant change in labour market trends.
