- Australian Government: Department of Immigration and Citizenship
Recently the Australian Department of Immigration and Citizenship has altered its list of acceptable Skilled Occupations (SOL) to not include any Occupations falling under the category of "Musician". This change makes potential migrants applying for any General Skilled Migration Visa not possible.
One such potential migrant is Brian Wroten who came to Tasmania from the USA two years ago to study at the University of Tasmania where he earned a Master's Degree in 2012 and has been proven to be a consistently valuable member of Tasmania's music community.
We would not like to see Brian deported because of the Department of Immigration and Citizenship's lack of acknowledgement of people with his special level of qualification and value to the community of Hobart.
We want the Australian Department of Immigration & Citizenship to reevaluate it's list of acceptable migrant Skilled Occupations to include a "Musician" category.
We also desire the Department of Immigration to allow Brian Wroten the opportunity to apply for a Graduate Provisional Visa (subclass 485) with his Nominated Occupation as "Musician (Instrumental)" (211213) under these new changes.
The Amend Immigration Skilled Occupation List petition to Australian Government: Department of Immigration and Citizenship was written by Brian Wroten and is in the category International Affairs at GoPetition.
