VETASSESS announces priority processing from August 1st for general professions

On 1 August 2017, VETASSESS will be launching a Priority Processing service for General Professional Occupation applicants.

This premium service will offer applicants the option to fast track their application for an additional fee. VETASSESS understand that some applications need to be processed with urgency – Priority Processing will ensure that the application is finalised within 10 business days.

Consideration for Priority Processing will only be given to new ONLINE applications lodged after 1 August. Full details about this service including the eligibility criteria to be considered will be available on the website from Tuesday 1 August 2017.

This service will not have an impact on their usual skills assessments services which will continue to be provided in line with their standard processing times.


To continue to provide efficient and high-quality skills assessment services, there will be a modest increase to the VETASSESS skills assessments fees for General Professional Occupations from 1 August 2017. VETASSESS has a firm commitment to offering customers price stability associated with services; this is evident in that the fees remained unchanged since 2014.
