Hi,

we can expect the changes to be in effect from next financial year or anytime during the next financial year. But this will only happen if it get passed from the house.

When will expect the migration changes for the year 2015-16? any changes coming ...
i think maybe mid-june. some minor changes can be published anytime eg validity of skill assessment, pro rata invitation... but if there is any change to the point system or SOL, i think they will announce in advance but not very early, maybe one/two weeks before 1/7

Exactly 1 July we can expect the changes.

I too am hoping they don't remove anything from the SOL. I've already completed the IELTS and received my ACS Skills Assessment. Removing an occupation now would make a lot of people very angry.

Good news for Nurses as It makes them eligible to apply with lesser IELTS score however, does not give points for language requirement.
