VETASSESS Priority Processing

28/07/2023BY Migrate 2 Oz

Dear Migrate 2 Oz Community,

We are pleased to announce important updates from VETASSESS regarding changes to priority processing for skilled migration applications. These changes, which will come into effect from July 31, 2023, will have a significant impact on individuals seeking to migrate to Australia under various skilled visa categories.

As experts in Australian immigration policies and regulations, Migrate 2 Oz is committed to keeping you informed about the latest developments that may affect your migration plans. We understand the complexities of the visa application process and are dedicated to providing a seamless experience for our valued clients.

Here are the key updates introduced by VETASSESS:

Changes to Priority Processing from July 31

Changes to VETASSESS Priority Processing for Skilled Migration Applications:

Dear Migrate 2 Oz Community,  

VETASSESS Priority Processing service will change so that applicants with evidence of urgent need will receive priority when places are allocated.
Urgent reasons to apply for Priority Processing are:

  • 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.

If you do not have an urgent reason, you can still apply for Priority Processing. Applicants with evidence of an urgent need will receive the first allocation of places, and any remaining slots will be offered to other applicants in the queue. Priority processing is available for professional and general occupations, but not for trade occupations.

1. Priority Processing for Certain Occupations:

From July 31, 2023, priority processing will be given to applicants with specific occupations listed on the VETASSESS Priority Processing Occupation List. This list will be regularly updated, and Migrate 2 Oz will assist you in identifying whether your occupation qualifies for priority processing.

2. Faster Processing Times:

The implementation of these changes aims to reduce processing times for applicants with occupations falling under the Priority Processing Occupation List. As your migration agents, we will work diligently to ensure your application receives expedited assessment, streamlining the visa application process.

3. Changes to Processing Fees:

With the priority processing changes, VETASSESS has made some adjustments to its processing fees, which will take effect from July 31, 2023. Rest assured, Migrate 2 Oz will provide you with the updated fee schedule and handle the payment on your behalf.
