Some of the Department of Immigration and Border Protection (DIBP)’s work visas need you to nominate an occupation included in one of the lists of eligible skilled occupations. They may also require an assessment of your qualifications and skills, known as a “Skills Assessment”. To check if your visa requires a Skills Assessment, please click here.
The Council conducts assessments on behalf of DIBP for the occupation of “Physiotherapist”. We perform this separately to our role in assessing qualifications for the purposes of General Registration with the Physiotherapy Board of Australia (the Board).
To make an application for a Skills Assessment, you must already hold or meet the qualification requirement for General Registration with the Board.
Please note that the Council cannot provide specific migration advice or information on appropriate visa selection, as this is outside our scope. Advice and information on migration processes and requirements should be obtained from DIBP; an Australian Embassy, Consulate, or High Commission; or a migration agent registered with the Migration Agents Registration Authority.
