17-April-10: I noticed a change in recognition as CPA no longer recognises accounting bodies from the above list. See international affiliates.

The Institute of Chartered Accountants in Australia is yet to recognise ICWAI qualification for the purpose of skilled migration assessment. 


Members of ICWAI who wish to migrate to Australia should apply with CPA Australia for a successful outcome. 


This is a great news of members of ICWAI and ICWAI for recognition of qualifications abroad.
