I am confused here. The description about SkillSelect here
From 1 July 2012, if you are interested in the following visas, you will need to submit an EOI and receive an invitation before you can apply for a visa:
Subclass 189 Skilled – Independent (Permanent) (Class SI)
Subclass 190 Skilled – Sponsored (Permanent) (Class SK)
Subclass 489 – Regional Sponsored (Provisional) (Class SP)
Business Skills visa program.
You can also express interest in the following visa programs on your EOI to be selected by an employer.
Subclass 186 – Employer Nomination Scheme (ENS) (Class EN)
Subclass 187 – Regional Sponsored Scheme (RSMS) (Class RN)
Subclass 457 – Temporary Business (Long Stay) (Class UC)
You can express interest in a range of skilled migration programs in one EOI.
So what about other subclass? mainly I am concerned of Subclass 175 and 176?
Wouldn't one have go through the SkillSelect process for Subclass 175 or 176?
Also there isn't anywhere I found that OccupationList is going to change and ICT related occupation will likely to be removed?
Please help me out here.
After July 1st 2012 following changes will take place,
subclass 189 (skilled independent) will replace subclasses 885 and 175
subclass 190 (skilled nominated) will replace subclasses 886 and 176
subclass 489 (skilled regional) will replace subclasses 487 and 475
