Skills Assessment

Evaluation of Skills for Skilled Migration in Australia

In Australia, securing a favorable skills assessment is an obligatory prerequisite for skilled migration, applicable to both the General Skilled Migration and Employer Sponsor Visa initiatives. The process entails assessing an applicant's qualifications and professional background to ascertain their appropriateness for the occupation they have specified in their visa application.


Certain visas in Australia require applicants to undergo a favorable skills assessment as part of the application process. These visas include:

  1. Employer Nomination Scheme (ENS) visa (subclass 186)
  2. Skilled Independent visa (subclass 189) - Points-tested stream
  3. Skilled Work Regional (Provisional) visa (subclass 491)
  4. Skilled Employer-Sponsored Regional (provisional) visa (subclass 494)
  5. Skilled Nominated visa (subclass 190)
  6. Temporary Skill Shortage (TSS) visa (subclass 482)

Different assessing bodies are responsible for evaluating the suitability of various occupations. For example, individuals with an Accounting degree might need a skills assessment from bodies like CPA, CA, or IPA. Work experience requirements vary, with some occupations mandating post-degree experience and others not.

Applicants are accountable for acquiring the required skills assessment. Each assessing body follows its unique assessment process, criteria, timeframes, and charges.
