The objective of the Temporary Skills Shortage (TSS) Skills Assessment Program (Program) is to determine whether an applicant can work in Australia at the required skill level for the nominated occupation. This aims to ensure successful applicants can contribute immediately to Australia’s skilled workforce.

A skills assessment through the TSS Program is for people who are applying for a TSS visa who work in a nominated occupation and who hold a passport from a nominated country or Special Administrative Region (SAR).
