Do you think you may be eligible to obtain a Skilled Occupation Visa?

 Maybe the new Temporary Skilled Shortage Visa (subclass 482)......? Perhaps the Employer Nomination Scheme Visa (Subclass 186)....? Or the Skilled Independent Visa (Subclasss 189).….?

 When assessing these skilled visa applications, decision-makers must be satisfied that the visa applicant has the ‘skills, qualifications and employment background’ essential to perform the selected position.


Will your relevant Skilled Occupation require a Skills Assessment to meet these requirements?Certain Visa Applicants are required under Migration Regulations to provide an appropriate ‘Skills Assessment’ prior to lodging their application OR demonstrate that they have commenced a Skills Assessment process.

Case officers may request a skills assessment.


LEGAL MIGRATION SERVICES (LMS) are equipped to undertake this on your behalf.

We have a comprehensive understanding of new migration regulations announced on 18 March 2018 to the Skilled Occupation Lists, including an expert knowledge of:

  • The categories of individuals who are required to undertake a skill assessment;
  • How to manage an application where you may be eligible to claim an exemption to the skill assessment.


LMS can access the appropriate Registered Training Organisations (RTO’s) or Recognised Prior Learning (RPL) organisation on your behalf to assess the validity of your supplied qualification/s.

LMS can also direct you to any further studies that you may be required to undertake in order for you to meet the relevant Skills Assessment criteria to be successful.
