Exemption from paying the GST component

Goods and Services Tax (GST) is a broad-based tax of 10% on most goods, services and other items sold or consumed in Australia. If you are not in Australia at the time of lodging the application, you may be exempt from paying the GST component.

You need to provide evidence for this exemption if one of your addresses in your application is an Australian address.

Acceptable evidence includes:

  • a Statutory Declaration
  • a Notorial certificate
  • a statement signed by a registered migration agent or lawyer.

This evidence must:

  • clearly state that the applicant was not in Australia at the time of lodging the application
  • be written on company letterhead
  • be signed by the individual registered migration agent/lawyer making the statement (not a representative)
  • be faxed or posted.

All VETASSESS fees are subject to change. Please note that technical interviews at non-established venues will incur an additional charge. In some circumstances VETASSESS is able to undertake 'in country' assessment at a higher charge. Please contact us for more information.
