vetassess processing times delayedVETASSESS is one of the main skills assessment bodies utilised to assess wannabe migrants professional qualifications or vocational skills as part of their Australian migration application process.

A recent letter from one of the managers at VETACESS highlights that there are ‘unusual delays’ in the current processing processing times with a current application with all the required documentation, requiring 10 to 12 weeks for completion.

Further info from the letter is below:

‘I am writing in relation to your recent Skills Assessment application to VETASSESS. Unfortunately, we have experienced an extremely high application rate over the last six months which has caused an unusual delay in our processing times.

Currently an application, with all the required documentation, requires 10 to 12 weeks for completion. We are extremely sorry for any inconvenience that this delay is causing you and wish to assure you that we are taking a number of steps to reduce the processing time and to ensure that our completion rates are back to normal early in 2014.

If you have an urgency request for faster processing due to a DIBP deadline (approaching significant birthday or visa expiry), please complete the Urgency Request form (SRGO5) available on our website and email to Please note that all urgent requests require manager’s approval and must be supported by evidence of urgency.

We appreciate your patience and understanding in this matter and request that you contact for any enquiries.

Are any of our readers effected? We’d love to hear from you. Post in our comments below.
