If you disagree with your unsuccessful skills assessment outcome, you can ask for a review of the decision. The review process involves a review of the decision by assessment officers not involved in the original assessment. There are fees applicable for Reviews. For further details of the relevant fees, click here.
Request for a review
A review application must:
- Set out the grounds on which the review is sought including any additional background information about the claims
- Include additional evidence to support your claims. You do not need to re-submit the documents provided in your previous application.
Please note that it is your responsibility to provide us with a decision-ready application at the time of making the request. VETASSESS is under no obligation to seek further information from you at any time and can make a decision based on the evidence provided.
To ask for a review, access the ‘Completed Cases’ section of your online application portal and submit the review application. This process also allows you to provide us with any new additional qualifications and/or employment along with the documented evidence to support your review application. You must submit your review application within 90 days from the issue date of the original assessment decision.
If you decide to apply outside of the 90-day time limit period, you will need to submit a new application and pay the full fees. This new application will still undergo the review process and documents submitted as part of this application will be assessed together with all previously submitted evidence.
Please note that the Priority Processing service is not available for review applications. The usual processing time frame for a review application is 14 to 16 weeks.
