Having your skills assessed is a requirement for skilled migration to Australia under points tested, employer sponsored, graduate migrant and temporary graduate visas. The skills assessment services we offer at VETASSESS will help you fulfill the requirements of your planned migration.

Occupations are classified as either general professional occupations or trade occupations. Before starting the application process determine whether your occupation is considered general or trade.
