Hi everyone,


I am an American living in Hong Kong. I am being sponsored by an Australian university to come work as a lecturer (ANZSCO code 242111). I am applying for a TSS (M) visa. What I am confused about is whether I need to do a qualifications check through VETASSESS. The Home Affairs website says:


If you were nominated in either the occupation Project and Program Administrator or Specialist Manager not elsewhere classified: a reference number for your VETASSESS Skills Assessment for General Professional Occupations for the relevant occupation must be included in your application otherwise your application will not be considered valid and will not be processed.


So if my nomination form lists me as a Project and Program Administrator or Specialist Manager not elsewhere classified, I need to do a VETASSESS skills assessment. Where I am confused is how to find out if my nomination is under one of these titles. I have asked my employer but they've basically said they don't know. Is this something I can figure out myself? Are all of the general professional occupations basically required to get a VETASSESS?


Any help would be much appreciated!

If your occupation is listed as either Project Program or Specialist Manager not elsewhere classified you have to do a skills assessment, otherwise not. The two occupations in question were occupations used as a cover for a lot of unskilled occupations in the past, hence the need for a skills assessment.

Excellent, thank you for the clarification!
