NAATI POINTS FOR SKILLED MIGRATION - Australian Migration agents | Immigration Lawyers in Melbourne & Canberra | Global Vision Migration


The NAATI will begin offering a new Credentialed Community Language (CCL) test in 2018.

Individuals who pass the NAATI CCL test are expected to be eligible to claim CCL points (also known as the “five bonus points”) as part of some points-based visa applications to the Department of Immigration and Border Protection.

  • For further details on the test, please contact us.
  • To schedule a CCL test, please contact us.

Individuals who receive certification should be able to claim CCL points without having to take any further tests, according to NAATI.

The first set of CCL tests will be conducted by NAATI during the week of March 19-23, 2018.

Specific languages for this test round will be scheduled in early 2018. If a test spot is available, applicants will be notified by email.

NAATI plans to conduct at least three more CCL testing cycles in 2018. A CCL test pass does not imply that the person is qualified to work as an interpreter or translator.

If you have “credentialed community language qualifications,” you can get an extra 5 points on the points test for skilled migration.

You must be accredited by the National Accreditation Authority for Translators and Interpreters (NAATI) at the para-professional level (Level 2) or higher to receive community language points. NAATI offered accreditation exams in the following languages at the time of writing:
