How long is the EA assessment letter valid for migration purposes?

The assessment outcome will remain valid indefinitely, the letters are only valid for migration purpose for 12 months. If an applicant requires a letter of assessment after this time, he/she may return the original letter to EA office, with the administrative fee of $75.00 to receive an updated letter.

Hi Andy, How accurate is this information please?Are you saying that an assessment outcome that was gotten in January 2017 cannot be used for Immigration purposes and we will have to get another letter to that effect?I have just lodged my visa application please kindly advice as I shall very much want to avoid a CO contact.TIA
