Getting a positive skills assessment is a mandatory part of skilled migration under the general skilled migration and employer sponsor visa programs in Australia. Skills assessments refer to assessing an applicant’s qualification and/or employment against the suitability of a nominated occupation.

There are different assessing bodies to evaluate the suitability of different occupations. For example, if an applicant wants to get a skills assessment for an Accounting degree, either CPA, CA or IPA can provide this assessment. For some occupations, work experience is mandatory upon completion of the degree or qualification while for others this may not be compulsory.

It is the applicant’s responsibility to obtain the required skills assessment. Each assessing body will have its own assessment process, procedures, criteria, timeframes and charges.

We understand how important getting a positive skills assessment is to apply for eligible visas. We also know how complicated the process can be when lodging an application for the first time. That’s why our pool of experienced registered migration agents is here to assist you through the entire process from reparing the documents to lodging the assessment application and eventually receiving a positive outcome.

The Skilled Migration stream has been developed to attract a highly skilled workforce to Australia who can make significant contributions to the Australian economy. Individuals who are capable to fill the skills shortages in Australia from the eligible occupation list can gain permanent residency through this program. It is a point-based system and constitutes the following four categories:

Skilled Independent visa

(SUBCLASS 189)

To apply for this visa, the applicant must have an occupation on the relevant skilled occupation list, have positive skills assessment for the occupation, submit an Expression of Interest (EOI), receive the invitation to apply for the visa after satisfying the points test.

Skilled Nominated Visa

(SUBCLASS 190)
