Migration Skills Assessment Guide

Before Applying

The Institute of Managers and Leaders Australia and New Zealand is contracted as an assessing authority by the Australian Government to assess senior-level management skills, for the purpose of skilled migration to Australia.

Before applying for a skills assessment, please ensure that the visa you are applying for requires a skills assessment and that IML ANZ is the appropriate assessing authority for your occupation.

Our skills assessment process evaluates both your higher education degree and your employment history for up to 10 years.

A positive outcome from the skills assessment issued by IML ANZ is valid for three years.
