I don't know if in my motivation letter I should tell the local consulate it's about immigration, attaching my Engineers Australia assessment certification. Or just pretend I have no intentions of immigration whatsoever and I take the exam purely for "XX". I don't think it is easy to fill that "XX" part though.
Have not come across such motivation letter when I applied online for the visa back in early 2017. But, at that time I attached my preliminary skill assessment letter along with the NAATI confirmation letter as supporting documents. In my opinion, applying for migration to Australia is a legal affair, there is nothing to hide. I do not think that there is any negative effect in disclosing to the local consulate about the reason for sitting NAATI test. Thanks!
