AVBC assesses qualifications and skills for migrating veterinarians under the skilled migration category.

The Australasian Veterinary Boards Council (AVBC) ensures high standards across veterinary practice in Australia and New Zealand. They handle the accreditation of vet schools, hold exams for overseas vets, and assess qualifications for both migration and specialist certification. This helps protect animal health and safety by guaranteeing that veterinarians are well-trained and qualified.
