Fast Track Migration Skills Assessment by Engineers Australia

Before you plan to opt for a Fast Track Engineers Australia Migration Skills Assessment, you need to ensure that you have the right documents stacked. That right document you will need is Competency Demonstration Report (CDR). Engineers who do not possess Australian qualifications or qualifications from countries that are signatories of Washington Accord are asked to prepare a CDR if they are looking for an engineering job in Australia.


A CDR comprises of:

  • Continuous Professional Development (CPD) list
  • Three Career Episodes (CEs)
  • Summary Statement

Once you are done preparing your CDR the skill assessment process follows.


The Engineers Skills Assessment process usually takes 4 to 7 months to complete. But in case you want faster results, the Engineers Australia gives you an option to request for a fast-tracking of your Competency Demonstration Report. You can opt for the Engineers Australia Fast Track Assessment process at premium charges. The fast-track assessment process takes only between 5 to 15 working days but may fall heavy on your pocket as it will cost you $275 including all the taxes.


One should also note that the fast track EA MSA service is available only to those applicants who have already submitted their visa application online. Those who have not applied for the visa yet can request for a fast-track assessment service only after they submit their application.


Waiting is often boring and stressful thus you may feel the need for a fast track assessment to get your visa approval quickly.  

Why does Skill Assessment takes time?

Engineers Australia does not make you wait for this long intentionally. The waiting period depends on the number of applications it receives collectively. Many of these applications do not have the required information, and checking them individually takes time thus assessment gets delayed.


EA requests the applicants to not to contact the assessing authority about the status of their application before 16 weeks in case of normal skill assessment, and not before 15 days while opting for Fast-track assessment. However, to calm the brawl inside your head, you can always send a blank status email request to receive a robotic response from the other side. This response will contain the updated advice on dates of applications currently being processed.

Why one should look out for fast track skill assessment process?

The most obvious reason is that it is a lot quicker than the standard skill assessment process thus you might receive your visa approval way earlier. Also, if you go for a normal lengthy skills assessment process, there are chances that the “in demand” jobs on the SOL list might get filled, and you will be left disappointed at the end. So, if your occupation is on the SOL list or you have an Australian employer who is interested in getting you on board, then you should definitely opt for the fast track skills assessment process.
