The Priority Processing service is available for an additional fee to a limited number of applicants. It is also subject to strict eligibility criteria, including that the application is made online for full skills assessment, with all documents submitted and payment received online at the time of submitting the application.
Where VETASSESS accepts an application for the Priority Processing service then, unless the assessment is delayed by circumstances beyond VETASSESS’ control, VETASSESS commits to completing the skills assessment within 10 business days, commencing on receipt by VETASSESS of a fully completed application, all required information and payment. It is the applicant’s responsibility to read and understand the application eligibility criteria, skills assessment requirements, and the relevant required documents checklist on the VETASSESS website before applying.
VETASSESS will not be liable for any loss suffered by an applicant whose skills assessment application is delayed by their failure to comply with the requirements of the Priority Processing service (including the submission of incomplete documentation) or if Priority Processing places are not available.
Applications that do not meet eligibility criteria for Priority Processing or where priority places are not available, will be assessed consistent with our usual service timelines. In these cases the Priority Processing service fee will be refunded to the applicant. Should VETASSESS fail to process within 10 business days an application accepted for the Priority Processing service, VETASSESS’ liability to the applicant will, in any event, be limited to the refund of the Priority Processing service fee.
