FAQ about Vetassess Skills Assessment Processing Times


We get asked about processing times A LOT! As can be expected so, we pulled together a quick cheatsheet of processing timelines for Vetassess - the skills assessing authority for a number of occupations including Restaurant Manager, Technical Sales Representatives, Environment Consultations, Chefs under OSAP to name a few!


And so here goes:


For all full Skills Assessments including post-485 applications and reassessment - change of occupation applications received:

  • The approximate time is 12 weeks after receiving all documentation required for the assessment. Applications identified for priority will be evaluated within 10 business days, after which the evaluation results will be emailed to download within 48 hours.


Qualifications Assessment for Temporary Graduate Visa (subclass 485):

  • The approximate time is 3-5 business days after VETASSESS receives all documents required for evaluation.


For Points Test Applications only (applicants for VETASSESS occupations):

  • The estimated time is 4-6 weeks.


For Points Test Applications (applicants for non-VETASSESS occupations):

  • The estimated time is 3 to 5 weeks.


For Reassessment - Skills Assessment Outcome Review and Appeal applications:

  • The approximate time is 14 weeks.


If you need to apply for a Chinese Education Credential through VETASSESS, it will take an additional 8-10 weeks.


Some cases take longer depending on the complexity of the case. As each case is different, the time period mentioned above may vary depending on the nature of the case and the investigation that may be required.
