ANZSCO 1.3 update set to be implemented in 2020

29th October 2019

An updated version of the Australian and New Zealand Standard Classification of Occupations (ANZSCO) has been released, and is set to be fully implemented mid-2020.

Until ANZSCO 1.3 is released mid-2020, ANZSCO 1.2 will be used in the assessment of most applications.

Applicants whose occupation are considered:

· Level 4-5 in ANZSCO version 1.2

· Level 1 to 3 in ANZSCO 1.3

· And must also earn at least NZD $25

Will be treated as ANZSCO skill level 1-3.

When assessing applications for Essential Skills Work Visas or award points for Skilled Migrant Resident Visas, occupations on the following list are considered level 1-3 providing applicants are being paid at least NZD $25 per hour.
