Steps for migration agents to complete a skills assessment
1. If you are submitting work experience on behalf of your client for assessment and reporting purposes, please arrange to have verification of relevant overseas nursing registration* emailed to firstname.lastname@example.org. ANMAC cannot report on work experience if evidence of registration has not been received. Please note, you are not required to arrange for registration verification to be sent by Ahpra. ANMAC will verify your Australian registration internally.
Verification of registration should be emailed or posted directly to ANMAC from the relevant authority. Where email is unavailable the relevant authority can post the verification directly to:
Skilled Migration Services
GPO Box 400
Canberra City ACT 2601
Please note, ANMAC will not accept emails that are sent from free web-based email accounts. Emails sent from other addresses will be accepted at the discretion of the assessor.
*To avoid delay, we recommend you request this prior to applying online.
