Migration in Western Australia (WA)

Skills Assessment

At Access WA we offer a comprehensive Skills Assessment service to help you fulfil all the requirements of your planned migration to Western Australia.

In many instances, the Department of Home Affairs, requires that the main applicant undertake the Skills Assessment by a relevant assessing body prior to qualifying for migration to Australia. Assessing organisations are appointed by the government, and have the expertise necessary to recognise whether or not an applicant’s skills and qualifications match the equivalent Australian standards. These organisations are a separate body to the immigration department and as such do not determine the outcome of the visa application, likewise a successful skills assessment does not guarantee a successful visa application.

A list of occupations and their relevant Skills Assessing Authority can be found on the Department of Home Affair’s website at https://immi.homeaffairs.gov.au/visas/working-in-australia/skill-occupation-list#

The applicant may be required to undertake a practical test or examination, in addition to providing proof of qualifications received as a result of an apprenticeship, internship and education.

Skills assessments are a critical part of any visa application and if not completed successfully may be detrimental to further applications for your Australian visa.
