Why use Fast Track?
Migration Skills Assessment (MSA) applications can take a long time to process. However, you can fast track your application and have it assigned to an assessor for processing within 20 working days.
How do I fast track my MSA application?
Simply select 'Fast Track' when completing your application online.

Current turnaround time for standard MSA applications
- Non-accredited qualifications: 9 weeks before the application is assigned to a case officer.
- Accredited Australian and Accord qualifications: 7 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 20 working days with the fast track service.
