The APC offers Skills Assessments for physiotherapists seeking migration to Australia, ensuring compliance with visa requirements.

The Australian Physiotherapy Council, acting on behalf of the Department of Home Affairs, conducts Skills Assessments to facilitate physiotherapists’ migration to Australia, ensuring their qualifications align with specific visa requirements.

Types of Skills Assessments

The required Skills Assessment depends on your visa type. Several assessments are available through the Council, and it's advisable to review the relevant page for your specific visa before applying.

  1. Skills Assessment for Permanent Residence/Skilled Regional (Provisional) Visas
    • This Skills Assessment is a document-based review ensuring your qualifications, skills, and work experience align with physiotherapy practice standards in Australia. The Council conducts this assessment on behalf of the Australian Government’s Department of Home Affairs (DHA) for physiotherapists seeking migration to Australia.
  2. Skills Assessments for Temporary Graduate Visas
    • The Skills Assessment for the Temporary Graduate Visa verifies physiotherapy skills eligibility for the visa application. The Council conducts this assessment on behalf of the Australian Government’s Department of Home Affairs, making it suitable for those seeking temporary stay post-graduation or preparing for a permanent residence visa.
