1.3 Applicant Guidelines

On this page

These Guidelines describe the MSA Program and outline the eligibility requirements in applying for a skills assessment under the MSA Program.

Before commencing an application:

  • You must check with the Department of Home Affairs (Home Affairs) (www.homeaffairs.gov.au) that your visa pathway requires a skills assessment and that TRA is the correct assessing authority for your nominated occupation.
  • You must read the eligibility requirements for the MSA program (refer to Section 2 of these Guidelines)

If you do not understand any part of the eligibility requirements, please contact TRA at traenquiries@dewr.gov.au

These Guidelines do not provide information on visas or points requirements for migration. All enquiries relating to visa and migration requirements must be directed to Home Affairs.

TRA reserves the right to amend these Guidelines as necessary. Information about changes will be posted as news item on the TRA website
