Pay the correct application fee at the time of submitting your application. Refer to Fees and Payment for Application Pricing List. Application fees are tax-inclusive. If you are not in Australia at the time of lodging the application you may be exempt from paying GST for your application fees. If you show an Australian address on your application form, you must provide evidence to support your claim for GST exemption. Acceptable evidence includes:

  • a Statutory Declaration;
  • A Notarial Certificate; OR
  • A Declaration signed by a Registered Migration Agent.

The declaration or certificate must clearly state that you are not in Australia at the time of lodging the application.

Declarations made by Registered Migration Agents must be on the Agent's business letterhead and be signed by the Agent (not by their representative).

As proof of your identity, we require your passport bio page showing your name, photo, date of birth and gender.

You must also read and sign the declaration on the application form to affirm that the information you have provided is true and correct, and to acknowledge that you understand how your personal information will be handled by VETASSESS.

Qualification evidence includes your qualification award certificate accompanied by the academic transcripts.

Award Certificate:

The award certificate is the official document confirming the completion of an award course of study. If you have not yet received your qualification award certificate, a provisional award certificate issued by the awarding body or an official statement of completion issued by the Registrar's department of the awarding institution will be accepted.

Academic Transcript:

Provide us with your complete academic transcript. Transcripts are the official records from the institution outlining the courses / units of study as well as the final grades achieved as part of your academic qualification. If you attended a college affiliated to the awarding institution, the award certificate must be issued by the awarding institution permitted to award the qualifications.

If your transcripts do not provide sufficient information regarding the units of study undertaken, please provide additional evidence, such as a course syllabus, to clarify this. You can also detail major projects and other significant features of your studies in your CV.

Employment evidence refers to recent and suitable prior experience that is equivalent of at least 12 months full-time work experience in your chosen occupation in the last two years before submitting your application to VETASSESS.
