2012年8月7号,西澳发布消息称从2012年8月1号起,西澳将暂停部分职业的担保,其中ACS担保的CIO和业务分析师(BA)都已不再担保,至此,西澳暂停了所有计算机相关职业的担保。计算机职业要想申请州担保需要4个6.5或更高才有希望。此次西澳暂停担保的职业达到84个,担保清单里的近一半已经暂停担保。

因为西澳所有担保的职业都是要求4个6就可以,这就导致近2年西澳申请人持续增加,随着申请人增多提高门槛是必然,就像前一段南澳突然提升雅思要求一样。近一段时期内,大部分澳洲申请人如果无法直接申请189的话雅思基本需要4个6.5才有希望获得州担保。随着申请人年轻化,随着申请人的雅思能力越来越高,移民国家对申请人的雅思要求肯定会逐步提高。但是某些时期内的要求可能会降低,申请人只有做好准备才有可能抓住时机。

移民政策的变化是由申请人数和接收人数两个因素动态决定的。申请人多于配额数申请门槛就会提高,申请人少于配额人数的话门槛就可能降低。以往的历史一再证明,早总比晚好,早了就有可能抓住更多的机会,对于移民申请人来说应该把眼光放长远,如果打算申请还是建议早准备,然后集中精力突破雅思。打算申请澳洲的建议尽早着手。雅思4个5可以移民澳洲的时代已经过去,希望雅思4个6可以移民澳洲的时代能够抓住。

西澳本次暂停担保的职业有84个,还在担保的职业到目前为止共97个。详见: http://www.flyabroadvisa.com/zdb/wa.html
