ANMAC’s Skilled Migration Services assesses 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 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 only responsible for assessing the skills of nurses and midwives for migration purposes.

To work as a nurse or midwife in Australia, you must be registered with the Nursing and Midwifery Board of Australia (NMBA). This registration process is separate to what we do.
