Appeal Process

The AIQS provides an appeal process for consideration of any applicants who object to the overall not suitable findings of their skilled migration assessment.

Appeals must be submitted in writing within three (3) calendar months of the date of initial assessment.  Applicants making an appeal must complete the Appeal Request Form with the details of the appeal.  Payment of the Appeal Fee must be included at the time of submitting the Appeal Request Form.  This fee is non refundable.

The appeal will be reviewed by an Appeal Panel consisting of two Skilled Migration Assessors who have been appointed by the Institute, but will not include the Assessor who made the initial decision which is being appealed.  Assessors are all senior members of the AIQS who have a wealth of experience working in the Quantity Surveying profession in Australia.

The following table outlines the fees applicable from 1 January 2014:
