Skills Assessments

All ANZSCO occupations must be assessed by an authorized skills assessing body which varies for different occupations. The relevant assessing body can be found under the Department information on the occupation.

Our office can assist you in preparing a skills assessment application in accordance with the requirements of each skills assessment body and the ANZSCO guidelines.

In order to apply for any Skilled Visa application you must hold a valid skills assessment, reflecting your education and/or employment qualifications. This can be a complicated process, without which you cannot proceed with your visa application.
