Australia unveils new validity requirements for skills assessments

July 2014, 07
EMAIL  Print A+
Australia SkillSelect program
The Government of Australia has proclaimed that skills assessments will be valid only for a period of three years, effective 1 July 2014.

If a skills assessment is compulsory for a visa application, then that assessment is valid for three years from the issuance date unless a specific validity period for shorter time is mentioned on the assessment.

The aspirants need a valid skills assessment if they are filing application for Direct Entry stream of either Employer Nominated Scheme (subclass 186) visa or Regional Sponsored Migration Scheme (subclass 187) visa or Graduate Work stream of the Temporary Graduate (subclass 485) visa.

The skills assessment is applicable at the time when applicants are invited to file an application for Australia Skilled-Independent visa (subclass 189), Skilled-Nominated visa (subclass 190) and Skilled Regional (Provisional) visa (subclass 489) through SkillSelect system for a successful visa application. However, these changes does not affect Temporary Work (Skilled) (subclass 457) visa.

The Government uses Australia SkillSelect program to set up skill scarcities in specific regions and entice right skills to fuel the economic growth and stability of the country. SkillSelect is an efficient and considerably faster way of processing visa applications.
