Overview

ANMAC’s Skilled Migration Services assess the skills of nurses and midwives who want to migrate to Australia under the General Skilled Migration program. We determine if an applicant has the nursing or midwifery qualifications and experience needed for permanent migration to Australia.

ANMAC is the independent assessing authority authorised by law to conduct these assessments by the Department of Immigration and Border Protection and Department of Education and Training.

Who we assess

We use 5 Assessment Criteria to assess the skills of:

  • internationally qualified nurses
  • internationally qualified midwives
  • international students studying nursing and midwifery in Australia or New Zealand who have completed their course and are registered in Australia or New Zealand.

What we do

ANMAC is responsible for assessing the skills of nurses and midwives for migration purposes. Our process is methodical and thorough, to ensure we perform our duties to the highest standards on behalf of the Australian Government and the public.
