Renewing an expired skills assessment
If you have previously received a positive skills assessment but it has expired, you may apply for a renewal with VETASSESS.
However, please note that it is your responsibility as the applicant to confirm with the Department of Home Affairs as to whether or not a renewed skills assessment outcome is required for the intended visa application.
Pre-2010 Skills Assessment
Applicants with a pre-2010 Skills Assessment (assessment for qualification level only) are required to apply for a new full Skills Assessment under the current process and assessment criteria. To make an application for a Full Skills Assessment, please click on the following link.

Post-2010 Skills Assessment
If you hold a post-2010 skills assessment, you can apply for a renewal to VETASSESS by completing the SRG35 form (607 KB pdf). Please use the SRG35 form even if you do not wish to assess additional qualifications and/or employment. This completed and signed form should be sent via email to firstname.lastname@example.org, along with any additional relevant documents to support assessment of qualifications and/or employment you would like to include that were not previously included in your prior assessment.
All documents must be high-quality colour copies of the original documents. If your documents are not in English, you must submit copies of the original documents as well as the English translations made by a registered translation service.
Please note that your renewal application will be reassessed under the current process and criteria and VETASSESS cannot guarantee a successful outcome.
If your renewal application is successful, you will receive a skills assessment outcome letter including:
- advice on the highest qualification level; and
- the date you are deemed skilled.
