• Skills assessments are issued by relevant skills assessing authorities. A skill assessing authority is an organisation that checks that your skills meet the standards they set to work in a relevant occupation.
  • The combined list of eligible skilled occupations sets out all relevant occupations under 4 occupation lists. Most occupations in each list have their own skills assessing authority. 
  • We at IME Advisors ensure that you obtain a skill assessment which is issued by the relevant assessing authority. Each assessing authority has its own assessment procedures, timeframes and charges.
  • Obtaining a suitable skills assessment is mandatory for some visa subclasses (and streams) and may be requested for others. Professionals at IME Advisors can help you determine if you need to submit a skills assessment and when you need to obtain it.
