This is the final step of the JRP. A successful JRFA outcome can be used to apply Home Affairs for a skilled visa.
To be eligible to apply for a JRFA you must have:
- achieved a successful (Job Ready) JRWA outcome and
- completed a minimum of 12 months of full-time paid employment (or equivalent part-time employment) within TRA approved employment within three years from your JRE Start Date.
This evidence must be reviewed and accepted by TRA.
After verifying your employment evidence, TRA will email you when you are eligible to apply for your JRFA. Please be aware that you should consider the JRP complete once you receive the official outcome letter confirming your successful outcome. It is important to maintain your employment arrangements until you have received the official JRFA outcome letter.
Within 45 days of receipt of your eligible JRFA application, you will receive a letter by email confirming you have completed all steps of the Job Ready Program and have attained a successful skills assessment in your nominated occupation.
This letter is not a qualification, nor does it represent formal accreditation of your skills and experience. It can only be used to apply to Home Affairs for a skilled visa.
You will receive an unsuccessful skills assessment outcome if it is found that documents or information you have provided during the JRP is:
- non‐factual or incorrect, or
- that you did not properly satisfy the JRP employment requirements.
If, in relying on that information, TRA has incorrectly assessed your application as successful, the assessment decision may be overturned and TRA will write to you to advise of the decision. (See section 4.4 of the Guidelines).
