Panelbeater Skills Assessment
Panelbeaters migrating to Australia are required to complete a skills assessment through VETASSESS.
The process is broken up into two stages.
Visa Go Australia will work with you to prepare the necessary documentation for lodgement with VETASSESS, who will review your training and employment evidence to ensure that you have either:
- 5 years employment experience as a Panelbeater with no formal training OR
- 3 years employment experience as a Panelbeater with relevant formal training
You will need to provide your qualification certificates as proof of formal training, and your employment evidence must include at least 12 months in the last 3 years. Evidence may include documents such as wage slips, bank statements, employment references, etc. Visa Go Australia will advise you about what exactly is required and prepare these in readiness for assessment.
VETASSESS FEE: AUD$1,280
This involves a technical interview with a VETASSESS Assessor via Skype. The technical interview takes approximately 2 hours, with the Assessor asking you a range of questions about the skills and knowledge necessary to work in your trade in Australia. These questions are based on the units listed on the trade Fact Sheet, which Visa Go Australia provides you with.
The technical interview will take place in either Edinburgh, London or Manchester and following a successful assessment, VETASSESS will issue you with:
- Skills Assessment Outcome letter,
- AQF Level 3 Panelbeater
VETASSESS FEE: AUD$2,000
Darren always took the time to answer any questions and help me through the process.
Within weeks he had my partner visa submitted and now I have my permanent residency!
I couldn’t thank Darren and the team enough 👍
My case officer, Sue, has been very professional and knowledgeable throughout the process providing great customer service, from providing the documents required to promptly replying to all queries.
So, to Darren, Kimberley and Sue, thank you all for your support to achieve my Visa.
Our visa process took 11 months (as expected for the visa we applied for) and Sue kept us on track and up to date all the time, extremely organised and always happy to help and provide us with her support.
I highly recommend Visa Go Australia, we couldn't imagine trying to go through this process without Sues help and guidance. Samantha Mills

I would highly recommend anyone applying for a visa to do it through them.
They made sure we had all the information at every step of they way and nothing was ever a problem if I called or emailed.
Thank you so much to all of the team!
