MOST Chinese Qualification Verification applications are completed within 6-8 weeks, but a small number of cases may take longer (e.g. awards received before 1995), for various reasons. Please allow 6 weeks before making any status enquiries. Failure to submit the required documentation will cause considerable delay in your Chinese Qualification Verification. Your Chinese Qualification Verification cannot be processed without the complete documentation received. VETASSESS can only proceed with the Skills Assessment after your Chinese Qualifications are verified.
