skill assessment required for 457 IT professional?

Recommended Posts



I have a bachellor as computer engineer and I finish the master degree 2 years ago. I was in the trainingship visa 402. Now, I want to apply for 457 with the help of my employer.


I want to know if the skill assessment by the ACS is required. Not even in the website there are any information about 457 and skill assessment (only recommendations).


Can anyone know for sure if I have to complete the skill assessment?


Kind regards,

Only trade occupations, "Project and Program Administrator" and "Specialist Manager not elsewhere classified" need a skills assessment for a 457 visa.
