I have just heard about the new changes today, I am working as a machine operator from the last three years and already applied for a work visa on a new position wood machinist. Just noticed that the wood machinist position is removed from the list and wants to know that, is there any chance to apply for a residence visa once my work visa approved?
Yes, you can still apply for Skilled Migrant Residence if you have sufficient points (160) and if you meet all other requirements of the policy. Removal of the occupation from any list will not limit your options for Skilled Migrant Residence. If you want you can calculate your points here.
