Assessment process

ANMAC’s assessment process is methodical and thorough, to ensure we perform our duties to the highest standards on behalf of the Australian Government. Our key role is protecting and promoting the health and safety of the Australian community by ensuring high standards of nursing and midwifery education.

We systematically follow these 3 steps when processing your application for skills assessment.

How is my ANMAC application form assessed?

  1. Review application and supporting material

    We review your application form and supporting material. This is handled by our assessment team in the International Services section.

    You must be a nurse and/or midwife for us to assess you skills for migration purposes:

    • If you hold Australian or New Zealand registration you will be assessed under modified guidelines.
    • If you are registered elsewhere in the world you will need to undertake a full assessment.
  2. Determine whether suitable or not suitable for migration

    ANMAC uses 5 assessment standards to assess skills for migration.

    If you meet all 5 standards you are suitable for migration. If you do not meet one or more of the standards you are not suitable for migration.

  3. Letter of Determination

    When your skills assessment has been completed, you will receive a Letter of Determination to notify you of your suitability to migrate to Australia. The Letter of Determination is posted to you or your migration agent, it cannot be scanned, faxed or emailed.
