How to get the Skill Assessment for Australia PR?

If you plan to apply for a skilled visa in Australia, the Skill Assessment report is a crucial document you need to obtain. As the title suggests, it is assessing your skills to work in Australia in a particular occupation.

Skills assessment report for Australia immigration is issued by relevant and approved skills assessing authorities. A skill assessing authority is an establishment that reviews that your skills meet the parameters they set to work in a relevant occupation.

Obtain Skill Assessment for a Skilled Occupation of Australia

Australian government every year release the list of in-demand occupations. The combined list of eligible skilled occupations arranges all relevant occupations under three occupation lists(MLTSSL, STSOL and ROL). Most of the occupations in such occupation lists have their own skills assessing authority.

The Department of Home Affairs (DHA), Australia, only accept the skills assessment report issued by the relevant assessing authority. Hence, to obtain the Skill Assessment, you need to contact the relevant assessing authority for your occupation, if required. Each assessing authority has its own processing time, assessment procedures, as well as charges.
