Department of Home Affairs requires visa applicants to supply skills assessments in support of a range of Skilled visa applications and Expressions of Interest (EOI). In some cases, overseas workers are also required to supply skills assessments in support of employer-sponsored work visa applications.
If you intend to apply for a ‘Skilled’ visa, you must obtain a skills assessment to demonstrate that you have the necessary skills that match those required for an occupation listed on current visa Occupation Lists.
In some cases, you may need to obtain a skills assessment for other employer-nominated visas. This is a requirement for subclass 186 ENS (Direct Entry stream) and certain subclass 482 Temporary Skill Shortage visa applicants.
