Default Very old assessment

hi
my brother has done ACS assessment in 2004 and been assessed as suitable for migration.

but for some reasons he did not proceed with immigration process

he wants to apply now, can he use that old assessment or he has to do a new assessment?


thanks

No, he cannot use the old one.

Dorothy the jury might be out on the question of whether a skills assessment can ever expire, the Department appears to have accepted a court decision which can be interpreted to make every skills assessment immortal, but it makes sense to reapply getting your occupational history validated so it's probably a moot point.

Thank you, George. I was under the impression that the skills assessment was valid for one year.

revalidation process refreshes the date. The issue with ACS in particular is that IT professions were in high demand and there were plenty of them back then, now the list is cut down to just a few. Revalidating one of the ones that's been cut out wouldn't get you anywhere.

Dear asmgx,

First, no-one applies for a general skilled migration visa any more without first lodging an Expression of Interest, you should read up on the SkillSelect pages.

Second, on the validity of an "expired" skills assessment, the Department has made statements at SkillSelect presentations which suggest that a skills assessment will not expire, however it's not yet clear if those statements are supported by the legislation. In your brother's case he may find that it's much better to get a new assessment mapping his work experience to the SOL and ANZSCO anyway.

Cheers,

George Lombard
