FAQ on Application Procedures
We strongly suggest you to submit online as it will save your time. As you might be required to show the originals of all documents submitted, if submit your application in person but are subsequently required to submit more documents after submission of application, you will be required to come to our office again to show the originals of additional documents submitted. However, if you submit application online, you could submit the additional documents via QA i-Portal. You would only be required to come to our office to show us the originals of all documents submitted when the Report for Qualifications Assessment is ready for pick-up.
No. Upon receiving the application, it is checked thoroughly. Once the HKCAAVQ has confirmed that the payment has been settled and all the relevant documents are provided, a receipt and an acknowledgement are issued to the applicant to inform him/her the assessment can commence and the assessment will normally take 15 working days starting from the next working day of the acknowledgement. However, if further information or research is required during the assessment process, the applicant is required to provide further information if necessary and the assessment process may take longer. HKCAAVQ reserve the right to terminate the application if the required information/certification and/or documentary evidence cannot be provided by the applicant or obtained from relevant bodies after a period of 2 months.

The organisation could certify that they have seen the originals of all submitted documents via QA i-Portal while Individual applicants might be required to come to HKCAAVQ office to show the originals of all submitted documents when collecting the Report for Qualifications Assessment.
