Victoria University (VU) is approved by the Australian Government's Trades Recognition Australia (TRA) to perform skills assessments for Permanent Migration (GSM, ENS and RSMS) and Temporary Skill Shortage (Subclass 482) visas.

You'll need to determine first whether your nominated occupation and country can be assessed by VU for the type of visa you are applying for.

You don't need to be living in your own country to be assessed.

Timelines for your application

The visa skills assessment process, from receipt of complete, decision-ready application with payment, takes a maximum of:

  • seven (7) weeks for the Temporary Skill Shortage (TSS) Skills Assessment
  • thirteen (13) weeks for the Permanent Migration (OSAP) Skills Assessment.
