Submitted my VETASSESS assessment!

Recommended Posts

Hi guys

 

I submitted my VETASSESS assessment 2 weeks ago and I am giddy with excitement and nerves.:jiggy:

 

I was just wondering if anyone knew, do VETASSESS email you to confirm they've received your application? Or is it just a case of wait, wait, wait for the final result?

 

Also, I heard it takes around 12 weeks to get the result. Is this true in your experience?

 

Really hoping to get to Adelaide, SA :spinny:

Don't have the answer but good luck, I will keep my fingers tightly crossed.


If you are depressed you are living in the past. If you are anxious you are living in the future. If you are at peace you are living in the present.

I don't remember receiving an email, but if you do it online you can check there to see if your supporting documents have been received. It's really the only benefit of online submittal, IMO. If you didn't, you could give them a call to see if they've gotten your items.

Thank you. I logged in and it's saying they've not received my docs yet (I didn't realise I could check online... d'ur!). I sent them 2 and a half week ago... Hope they receive them soon!:wideeyed: I haven't sent anything to oz before so I don't know what the normal time line is for receiving post.

 

Anyway, just incase anyone else is in the same boat, VETASSESS said they will email me when they have received them. :v_SPIN:

I sent all my documents off to Vetassess from the UK on the 5th Sept & received an email on the 26th Sept to say all had been received. My online status page also updated to show "all documents received".

Now just nervously waiting with fingers crossed for the outcome!

Guys we waited one month before they did anything with our application- we know they got it a week later as we sent it from Ireland with DHL. Then we waited another 4 months for them to process it. All in all about 5 months!

 

The giddy ness soon left us!

We submitted ours in November and are also still waiting. I am tearing my hair out as that July date is looming closer and closer and we still need to do state sponsorship before lodging the visa:arghh:

I sent all my docs on the 15th December, am under serious pressure to get application in before April, not only will vetassess not speak to me over the phone, but when I do manage to get through, they keep fobbing me off with londer waiting times!!

 

So frustrating!

:arghh:

 

 

It's a paid service, they're not doing anything for free, I really think that they should hire more staff or do something to relieve the backlog.

 

Would love to hear from anyone who applied around the same time for a professional position !


Applied for RSMS non-DRC to Perth office, mid-June 2012.

Irish citizen, native English speaker.

Vetassess skills assessment included.

Approved 07th August 2013!!

Hi Regina Phalange. Best of luck with the Vetassess. They will surely send you an email confirming that they have received your application and the payment. After tat it is a long never ending wait. My OH has also submitted his application to Vetassess for assessment. It has been close 14 weeks and we are still waiting. We are from a HR country so that is why our wait is longer. Just hope that we get a positive result at the end of the wait.

 

If you have submitted everything as they have asked for then hopefully you should get a response soon. Their minimum waiting time is 12-16 weeks if you have asked for a skill and qualification assessment.

 

Hope my response was successful.

what in ur opinion is the best way to get 8's in the IELTS. My hubby sits this weekend for the 2nd time. we need 8's in all components. He has terrible writing so scored only 6.5 in it. Any ideas

I recommend trying to get himself onto one of those evening crash courses, although it might be a bit late at this stage... Otherwise, he could check out all the resources on the internet such as example questions with example answers for each band. Research exactly what the examiners will be looking for, and try to ensure that bad habits are eliminated.

 

 

I scored 8.5 across the board on mine, but I put a lot of it down to the crash course I did over the space of a week. There are many errors and habits which may well have gone against me if I had not have taken that course!

I submitted my VETASSESS for professional occupation assessment on 27th Oct 2011 and had a case officer contact me for some additional document at the completion of 16 weeks around 24th of Feb. So still waiting.

I passed vet assess in October, I rang them a lot and the info they can provide is limited. From my experience the procedure is as follows

1 . Your documents go to a lady who processes payment

2. The documents then are put into a file and the online system is updated

3. Your file is given to a team, A case officer from that team is assigned , if the case officer needs help he may ask another case officer for advise, they need to verify your employment, college and ensure your references are similar to the anzeco code

4. The case officer makes a decision but a verifier from the team needs to double check to ensure decision is correct

5 a decision is made, letters are prepared and your details are updated on the online system

The process is too lengthy... They need to revamp their department, hire more ppl and make the process less painful and tiring. The wait is a killer for most of us....

my vetassess says "employment check in progress" does anyone think that means they have recieved the paper work? you would think a simple email saying documents recieved would save time spent answering the phone to us poms waiting to get to oz!!!:wacko:

Our application status just continues to say all doc received status shows pending nothin else...when u email them they just send us an automated reply that the process is 16 weeks and in some cases it could take a little longer nothing more than that...
