    Current turnaround time for standard MSA applications

    • Non-accredited qualifications: 19 weeks before application is assigned to a case officer.
    • Accredited Australian and Accord qualifications: 8 weeks before application is assigned to a case officer.

    Remember, you can reduce this turnaround time and have your application assigned to a case officer in 15 days with the fast track service.

    Please be aware of the following:

    • The current turnaround time is 26 working days due to higher than expected demand during the holiday period
    • Exact turnaround times can vary depending on the number of incoming applications.
    • Turnaround time is based on the date of receipt of all required information.
    • Please do not contact Engineers Australia within the time frames listed above, as this will only delay processing times for all applications.
    • Regularly updated advice on the dates of applications currently being processed can be sought by sending us a blank status email request. You will receive an automatic response.
