If you are a Migration Agent, click here to download the appropriate form.
Step 1: Submit your application
To apply online, you’ll need to have a valid IPA account to enable you to login. If your qualification has been assessed by us previously, you are an IPA member, student member, or you've attended an IPA CPD event before, you should have a record in our system. If you believe your details are not in our system, you’ll need to create an account first.
A migration agent or an authorised person, such as a family member, friend etc can assist with your application. They will need to use your account details to login, and fill agent or authorised person details in the relevant section in the process. The correspondence, including assessment outcome will then be sent to the agent or an authorised person, rather than yourself.

Step 2: Acknowledgement
You will receive an acknowledgement of your application via email, which includes your tax invoice. This invoice contains your unique ID Number. Please quote this ID Number in all correspondence with us.
We may contact you as we progress your application to request additional documents or further information from you. The assessment process cannot be completed until all required documents are received.
Step 3: Your assessment outcome
Once your application has been completed, you will receive an email from the IPA, providing a link to access the outcome letter, which will be held on the DocuSign platform.
The DIBP accepts this letter to be submitted with your visa application. The DIBP will also be able to validate authenticity of outcome letters from the IPA, through the secured audit trails embedded in the DocuSign system.
Note that due to strict Australian Government Privacy laws, the IPA is unable to provide confirmation to parties other than you or your approved agent.
Please note: Yahoo! email account holders may have issues with accessing DocuSign emails, so we recommend providing an alternative email address for us to communicate with you.
