Default Urgent Help (worried about MODL Revision after visa application lodgement) -

Hi All,

I am a GSM 175 (MODL) applicant,
My occupation is present in current MODL.
So, at the time of lodgement I have opted for MODL 15 points to meet the 120 points eligibility criteria.

According to the latest DIAC updates, MODL will be revised in another couple of months. Migration Occupations in Demand List (MODL) Review opens for submissions


If my occupation goes out of MODL in near future, will it affect my application in further processing ?

I understand the delay in MODL processing, but I am worried about the Eligibility part.

Also confused with below statements.....

DIAC website says -

"If your nominated occupation is on MODL either at the time your application is lodged or assessed, you will be eligible for 'occupation in demand/job offer' points on the General Skilled Migration points test. You will receive extra points if you have a job offer from a suitable
Australian employer."

My online application says -

"Changes to the Migration Occupation in Demand List and the Skilled Occupation Lists between the time of lodgement and the time of assessment may affect the points awarded when your application is assessed".


Can any one please give some clarity on this.....

Cheers for any help.

Solly

Hi Solly,

I think there is a case Law on the MODL when they change the MODL list and Accountants was not on the MODL.

In my opinion DIAC is right.

Default MODL occupation at time of application

Adding to Glenn's comments Barrister Lorenzo Boccabella won the case at the federal courts to mainatain the principle that a MODL occupation at time of application will remain under force of Fact even if the occupation is removed from MODL list at time of decsion making.

Robert and Glenn are both right Solly. There should be no need for you to be unduly worried if your occupation comes of the MODL.

Kind regards
