If you would like to see if you are eligible for a Skilled Visa, use our free visa points calculator and/or send your CV to and our Migration Consultants will be happy to advise on your options.


The process is broken up into three stages. Plumbing is a licensed trade so employers in Australia will insist you hold your Australian Plumbing Qualification for registration and insurance purposes. It’s also important to know that each state and territory in Australia has different regulations and if you require a builders license you will need to obtain a Certificate 111 in prior to applying for your builders license. Plumbers must do a Practical exam for their Skills Assessments and they can be done in Blackburn (Lancashire) or London.

1. SKILLS ASSESSMENT ELIGIBILITY: Give The Down Under Centre a call to discuss your eligibility for the Plumbing Skills Assessment. You can call us on 0203 376 1555.


DOCUMENTARY ASSESSMENT: In short,  you are required to prove you are a Plumber and have the necessary skills to work as a Plumber in Australia.
