Information For Migration Agents


ACS can assist migration agents who have clients that intend to apply for a skills assessment in order to migrate to Australia. Migration agents can register their details with ACS to create their own agent profile. This allows agents to use the same login details for each client application they submit.

Migration agents who have already registered with ACS, please proceed to the Agents Login to access your dashboard where you can manage all your ACS applications. 

Please Note: Only one application per client can be active at any one time.




The Global Talent Visa program is designed to attract the best and brightest skilled migrants to Australia in a number of sectors. Candidates who meet eligibility requirements are invited by the Department of Home Affairs (DoHA) to apply for a Global Talent Visa.
