This is the official accessibility statement for the WA Migration Services website, which provides access to information and services related to skilled migration in Western Australia.
We are committed to making information and resources accessible to all users.
What is accessibility?
The World Wide Web Consortium (W3C) has produced the Website Content Accessibility Guidelines 2.0 (WCAG 2.0)(opens in a new tab) to assist website designers, developers and administrators in producing accessible pages and content. There are three levels of accessibility compliance; Level A, AA and AAA.
The accessibility features currently available include:
- increasing or decreasing the text size (via the user's browser);
- 'skip to' links and a logical tab order to navigate using assistive technologies; and
- printer-friendly content.
Alternative formats for content
If we have produced a document or other content in a format that is not accessible to you, please contact us and we will be happy to discuss your needs and, where possible, provide an alternative format of the content.
Languages other than English
As a WA State Government agency, the Department is committed to ensuring that people who are not able to communicate effectively in written and/or spoken standard Australian English are able to access the information and services we provide. A range of supports, including interpreter and translation services, are available to assist — please visit the Office of Multicultural Interests website(opens in a new tab), to find out more.
If you have difficulty accessing information on any of our pages, please contact us and provide links to pages and outline your requirements. We will try to supply the information to you as required.
Please note that we cannot take responsibility for the accessibility levels of external websites linked to from this website.

Website breadcrumbs help you to determine the location of the page that you are currently viewing.
The 'crumbs' progress from the highest to the lowest level from left to right, ie starting with the home page and ending with the currently viewed page.
