Changes to Priority Processing from July 31

The VETASSESS Priority Processing service will change so that applicants with evidence of urgent need will receive priority when places are allocated.

Urgent reasons to apply for Priority Processing are:

  • Your visa expires within eight weeks and you are unable to obtain another visa
  • You are turning 33, 40 or 45 within eight weeks
  • Your English test result (IELTS or PTE) expires within eight weeks
  • Your Partner Skills Assessment or English test result expires within eight weeks.

If you do not have an urgent reason, you can still apply for Priority Processing. Applicants with evidence of an urgent need will receive the first allocation of places, and any remaining slots will be offered to other applicants in the queue. Priority processing is available for professional and general occupations, but not for trade occupations.


For more than 25 years VETASSESS has provided tailored, independent assessment services to governments, education sectors and industries globally.
We have pioneered assessment services to recognise and verify individuals’ qualifications, skills and experience for migration purposes against the requirements of 360 professional and 27 trade occupations.
