Welcome to ACS Migration Skills Assessment

ACS is the authorised assessing authority that undertakes skill assessments for the purposes of skilled migration. Our role is to assess the skills and qualifications of ICT professionals who are considering migration to Australia to work in the Information and Communications Technology (ICT) sector.

This is an important role in Australia’s national interest, intended to supplement the Australian workforce with skills in areas of domestic shortage to ensure continued economic growth and enable the country to best position itself for continued prosperity. 

Before you submit a migration skills assessment please review the Skills Assessment Guidelines for Applicants.

These Guidelines describe the eligibility requirements in applying for a skills assessment under the Migration Skills Assessment program. They do not provide specific information on migration or visa requirements. All enquiries relating to visa and migration requirements must be directed to the Department of Home Affairs.

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