Licence Equivalence Search

Specified licensed occupations have been subject to a ministerial declaration process and an licence equivalence search can be performed for these occupations. A list of the occupations can be found on the ​About page.

If an equivalent licence is shown in the search result, a licence holder is entitled to that equivalent licence. You will need to apply for that licence with the licensing authority in the state or territory where you are planning to work, and pay any relevant fee.

Contact Information for state and territory licensing authorities is provided at the completion of a licence search and these are also available on the Licensing Contacts page.

Note: A licence search is not available for occupations that have not been the subject of a ministerial declaration, including professional occupations. If your occupation or licence type is not listed, or you are unable to find an equivalent licence, you are still entitled to have your licence considered under mutual recognition. Please contact the licensing authority in the state or territory in which you want to work for advice on how to progress a mutual recognition application.

If you experience difficulties with the Search tool you may need to access this website through Firefox or Safari internet browsers. Other internet browsers may be incompatible.
