    • Stage 1
      The first stage of the application process involves completing a skills assessment. Your skills assessment enables the Department of Immigration and Border Protection (DIBP) to judge if you have the required level of skill in your chosen occupation to practice in Australia.



  • Stage 3
    Once  an Invitation To Apply (ITA) is issued, you can submit your final, complete application to be approved by DIBP so your visa can be granted. Priority processing arrangements apply to this visa. They determine the order in which the department considers applications regardless of when the application was submitted.
