If you already hold a work visa, the skill level of your job will remain the same for the duration of your visa.

ANZSCO Version 1.2 will continue to be used in the assessment of most applications until mid-2020. In mid-2020, ANZSCO will no longer to be used to assess the skill level of jobs for the Essential Skills Work Visa. For this reason, continuing to use ANZSCO Version 1.2 will ensure a smoother transition to the new way of assessing temporary work visa applications.
