The occupation ceiling is a limit on how many people could be invited to apply for a skilled visa from a particular occupation group. Once the limit is reached for each program year, there would be no further invitations to apply for migration from that particular occupation group.
 
An ‘occupation ceiling’ may be applied to invitations issued under the independent, family sponsored and state or territory sponsored visas. This means there will be a limit on how many EOIs can be selected for skilled migration from an occupation group.

Once this limit is reached, no further invitations for that particular occupation group will be issued for that program year. Invitations will then be allocated to intending migrants in other occupation groups even if they are lower ranking.

For the state or territory migration programs, a state or territory will not be able to nominate you if your nominated occupation has reached its occupation ceiling.

Any ceilings reached should be reset on 1 July.
