globe-110775

If you need to obtain 5 additional points in order to apply for a skilled visa, you can consider passing the community language test accredited by the National Accreditation Authority for Translators and Interpreters (NAATI) at the para-professional level (Level 2) or higher. Proficiency can be demonstrated in either translating or interpreting.

Do you need 5 extra points?

Please note, for your situation, 5 extra points may not be necessary or may not be sufficient. Migration laws are complex and continuously changing. A migration assessment with a registered Australian Immigration Specialist is a very important and worthwhile part of the migration process as it will allow you to obtain precise information for your situation based on updated legislation. Find out more about what a migration assessment involves and book an appointment.

Applicants who decide to apply for a test need to complete the Form A – Application for Accreditation by Testing which can be downloaded from the NAATI website.
