What is Skill Assessment?

Skill Assessment is a very important step for individuals who wish to migrate to Australia. It is a formal process designed to evaluate and verify your skills, qualifications, and work experience to ensure that they align with the requirements of your chosen occupation. Whether you’re a skilled professional or an expert in your field, Skills Assessment is an essential part of your migration journey.

In short, it proves that you have the requisite skills to perform the tasks of the role you have applied for in the visa application. For each skilled occupation listed on relevant occupation lists, the DOHA has specified an assessing authority that may conduct skills assessments for that occupation. The DOHA will accept only a skills assessment conducted by the relevant assessing authority to support an EOI for visa application.
