» Critical Skills List
Before 1 July, 2010, Australian visa applicants with occupations on the Critical Skills List were eligible to have their applications given priority processing over those with other occupations on the MODL.
The Critical Skills List gave priority processing to applicants in the medical, engineering and construction fields; as well as people working in key IT professions.
Points test scores for occupations on the MODL are not affected.
Note: In addition to the list above, Computing Professionals (who have professions and specialties on the current MODL) will qualify under the CSL.
