Step 4 - JRFA

When you have successfully completed Steps 1, 2 and 3 of the Job Ready Program you will be eligible to apply for a Job Ready Final Assessment (JRFA).

A successful JRFA provides you with a skills assessment outcome, required for an application to the Department of Home Affairs for a visa for independent skilled migration.


To be eligible to apply for a JRFA you must have:

  • a successful Provisional Skills Assessment outcome (Step 1); and

  • a successful Job Ready Workplace Assessment outcome (Step 3)

and provided your TRA Liaison Officer (TRA LO) with:

  • acceptable pay evidence to support at least 1725 hours of paid employment over a minimum of 12 months in your nominated occupation that has been registered via the Online Portal and approved by TRA; and  

  • 12 months of Job Ready Journals signed by your nominated supervisor and approved by TRA

Once your TRA LO has reviewed your documentation and is satisfied that you are eligible to apply for a JRFA, they will contact you to confirm you can submit your application online. 

How to apply

You must complete all the mandatory fields, and pay the application fee, through the Online Portal. Application documents must be emailed to within 30 working days of the online submission date for the application to be registered. Documents must be provided as a single PDF attachment.
