  • English language proficiency test results: Evidence that you have met the English language proficiency requirements for the visa.

  • Health insurance: Evidence that you have adequate health insurance for yourself and any dependents.

  • Police clearance certificate: A police clearance certificate from the Australian Federal Police (AFP) for all applicants over the age of 16 years.

  • Skills assessment documents: evidence that the relevant assessment authority has assessed your skills as suitable for your nominated occupation (Graduate Work stream).
