VETASSESS priority processing updates

VETASSESS the skills assessing body for many qualifications offers a Priority Processing service for General and Professional occupations which gives an opportunity to fast-track the application.

Priority Processing applications are completed and the outcome is provided within 10 business days.

There is high demand for Priority Processing, so applicants with evidence of an urgent need receive priority when places are allocated.

However, even if you do not have an urgent reason, you can still apply for Priority Processing. Applicants with evidence of an urgent need receive the first allocation of places, and any remaining slots are offered on a first-come-first-served basis to other applicants in the queue.

What is an urgent need?

Urgent reasons to apply for Priority Processing are:

  • You have received an invitation from the Department of Home Affairs or an Australian state or territory government, which has an expiry date
  • Your visa expires within eight weeks and you are unable to obtain another visa
  • You are turning 33, 40 or 45 within eight weeks
  • Your English test result (IELTS or PTE) expires within eight weeks
  • Your Partner Skills Assessment or English test result expires within eight weeks

What does Priority Processing cost?

There is an additional cost of $806, excluding GST, for this service charged by VETASSESS from 9th August.
