INSTRUCTIONS FOR EMPLOYMENT CERTIFICATES
A common requirement for an applicant for
Employment history and skills obtained. Many of the employment certificates provided by applicants are not acceptable for migration purposes because they are illegible, unintelligible, not signed by an authorized person or impossible to verify.
It is the therefore essential that any employment certificate you present in support of your application have the following characteristics.
** descriptions of positions held (positions should not be described by generic titles (eg research officer, public servant) but according to the nature of the duties undertaken (eg research chemist, accounts clerk) and of at least the five main duties undertaken.
** annual salary being earned.
Employment certificates which do not include sufficient information for the assessing officer to reach a decision on an application will not be accepted. This will cause significant delays in processing your application, as we will have to write to you and advise that your application cannot proceed until we receive acceptable employment certificatres. If you fail to provide such information you application may be refused by the Australian Immigration Department.
