Skills assessment questions

How do I apply for a skills assessment?

What visa options are available to me as a dental practitioner?

The ADC is unable to provide advice about visas or migration. You should contact the Department of Home Affairs for information.

I have just received an Australian dental qualification and want to continue living in Australia. Do I need a skills assessment?

If you are an overseas resident, have recently received a dental qualification from an accredited Australian university and wish to apply for a visa, you may be required to apply for a skills assessment with the ADC.

You should contact the Department of Home Affairs for further information.
