Current processing times and expedition requests for MSA & MPA programs

On this page

The Migration Skills Assessment (MSA) and Migration Points Advice (MPA) programs are currently experiencing a significant increase in application rates. This is affecting processing times and assessments are taking longer than 120 days to complete.

Expedition requests may not be able to be accommodated during this time. If you have concerns about any visa deadlines, we ask that you please discuss these with the Department of Home Affairs.

Please do not contact us for status updates, as all applications are being assessed in the order they have been received.

TRA apologises for any inconvenience and asks for your patience.
