 what is VETASSES?

Well, VETASSESS is a designated skill assessment authority that is approved by the Australian Government for assessing skill assessments of the candidates who have applied for skilled immigration and employer-sponsored visas. Every year, this authority assesses the profiles of a great number of immigrants applying both offshore and onshore.

Getting a skills assessment done from VETASSESS is mandatory if you want to submit an EOI (Expression of Interest) through an online skill selection.

You can say, the VETASSESS skills assessment is a background check that helps to select the most deserving candidates who can contribute their part towards the growth of the Australian economy as a whole.

There are two streams for the VETASSESS skills assessment such as:

  • For General Occupations
  • For Trade Occupations

If your occupation falls under the skill trade, then you can apply under the trade occupation stream. On the other hand, if your occupation is non-trade, then you can apply under the General occupation stream.

As a newbie, you might be having certain questions about the VETASSESS assessment for Australia Immigration. So, below are the top questions that are sure to trigger any mind who is thinking of Australian Immigration via the skilled migration visa.

Have a look at the top questions asked by various clients!

How will VETASSESS validate my degree if my university is closed?

Well, VETASSESS doesn’t visit your university as they are aware of identifying the fact that your education degree corresponds to Australian education standards or not. Also, in case of further information or cross-checking any submitted details, they contact the universities directly because the admin offices are still open.

What if I am unable to gather my documents within the set time frames?

Well, if this is the case, then both VETASSESS and the Australian Immigration authorities are well aware that this is a difficult phase for all due to the wreaking havoc created by COVID-19. In this case, the assessing authority will try to be flexible as much as they can, however, please keep in mind that you don’t do any leniency just to take advantage of the flexibility.

My Office is closed, in this case, how will VETASSESS validate the employment record?

Well, in this case, it’s always better to discuss the situation with either the agent or the Australian Immigration authorities. Well, due to the office closure, it’s clear that you will not be able to get an official document related to work experience and employment records, but still, it depends from case to case. So, inform the authorities in advance if this is the case.

Why should I consider a skills assessment when Australian Borders are closed?

It is true that the Australian borders are closed, however, you can still apply and obtain a positive skill assessment for your nominated occupation as the Department of Home Affairs (DHA) is still processing Australian Visas. The Australian Government is still facing skill shortages and that’s the reason why it is processing the visas of the people who are applying for Australia Immigration.

Final Words

Australia Immigration is not as easy as it seems, however, with proper guidance and profound knowledge, the whole immigration process becomes easy! So, if you are interested, you can apply for the skilled migration visas and get your skill assessment done as the Australian Government is still processing the visa applications. Apply now! Good Luck!
