VETASSESS Skills Assessment: 7 Common Mistakes

The VETASSESS skills assessment is a necessary step for skilled visas and employer sponsored visas.  Applying for the VETASSESS skills assessment can be overwhelming. It is important to gather all the required documents and evidence in advance. We have compiled a list of seven common mistakes to help you to improve your application.

Failure to include relevant qualification documents

Specific regions like China, Europe, the Philippines, and Lebanon may have additional requirements for qualification documents. Familiarize yourself with the specific document requirements based on your country of origin.

Submitting an incomplete application

We often face that applicants are missing employment records or proof of qualifications. Ensure you provide evidence of all the employment periods along with your formal academic qualifications that relate to your occupation, not just the most recent ones.

Assuming occupation assessment is solely based on job titles

Different countries may have different job duties and responsibilities within the same occupation. Ensure you understand the requirements of your occupation in Australia. The Australian requirements for your occupation are listed in the Australian and New Zealand Standard Classification of Occupations (ANZSCO). Read the ANZSCO definition and tasks to grasp the significance and skill levels needed. And you figure it out, apply for the VETASSESS skills assessment.

Insufficient employment duration

In order to receive a positive skills assessment from VETASSES, it is necessary to have at least one year of full-time employment within the last five years from the date of application lodgement. Please ensure that you meet the assessment requirements.

Lodging a Priority VETASSESS skills assessment incorrectly

To improve readability for SEO purposes, you can revise the provided text as follows:

“If you are considering submitting a Priority Processing application for a second time, please be aware that Priority Processing is only available to returning applicants who:

  1. has not received a negative outcome previously.
  2.  intends to renew an application that has previously received positive assessments for both employment and qualifications.
  3. is seeking reassessment for a new occupation.

Not providing the applicant’s contact details

When an agent or attorney files the application, the applicant’s contact information must be included (phone number and email).  This prevents delays in the assessment process should assessors  require direct communication with an applicant.

Failing to supply original language and English translation documents

Documents in language other than English must be accompanied by copies of the originals and an English translation.  In additiondocuments in the original language without translation will not be accepted.
