Engineers are required across Australia, and can apply for visas allowing migration to Australia under the general skilled visa program using visa subclass 189, 190, or 489.

In common with all general skilled visa applications engineers must secure a positive migration skills assessment before they can progress a skilled visa application with the Department of Immigration.

Engineers apply to Engineers Australia (EA) for a migration skills assessment.

There are 2 pathways allowing for a positive migration skills assessment from EA:

Applicants to EA with an accredited qualification must provide details of their qualification, including an academic transcript of their degree qualification/s.

Applicants who do not have a recognised qualification must submit what is called a Competency Demonstration Report (a CDR) to EA that is a detailed report on qualifications attained, how engineering experience and knowledge has been applied, and how the competency standards of the relevant engineering classification in Australia have been met.
