Skill Select system error for 489 State sponsored EOIs –
We are aware of DHA emailing many people who have 489 EOIs lodged under the state sponsored stream. The email in short says that their occupation is no longer on the new STSOL which took effect from 18th March 2018. And as a result their EOI was going to be removed from the skill select system.
This is lawfully incorrect as the occupations in all the cases we have so far seen have remained on the MLTSSL. And so can still remain as an active EOI for the 489 visa category.
We have asked DHA to clarify and will update when we hear further information.
