2 things to consider before you begin
1. Get your English tested!
If English is your first language you may not need to perform a test. however the main requirement for an Australian Work visa is your level of English. These English language tests are accepted:
- IELTS – International English Language Testing System
- PTE Academic- Pearson Test of English
- TOEFL iBT – Test of English as a Foreign Language internet-Based Test
- CAE – Cambridge English: Advanced test
- OET – Occupational English Test

2. Consider a Skills Assessment!
A skills assessment will match your education and experience with your occupation. This is done by an Australian organisation called an assessment body.
Each assessment body has their own set of requirements. Often requirements will include close examination of your qualifications and experience.
Some examples of assessment bodies are
- Trades Recognition Australia
- Engineers Australia
- Australian Computer Society (ACS)
This is often overlooked but can be the most important part of a work visa.
