I am planning to take the NAATI test this year or next year, and was surprised to find that there is no overseas test centre in the UK. Am I right or did I miss anything?

Does it mean that I have to go to Australia/ or other countries to take the test, or apply for accreditation on the basis of overseas qualification?

Hello Carol

Happy Chinese New Year!
(There is a Lantern Festival in my city today. )

I found this site ... you could give it a try:
National Accreditation Authority for Translators and Interpreters (NAATI)

'The Australian Visa Bureau is a division of Visa Bureau Ltd, an independent UK company specialising in visa and immigration services to Australia.'

Best wishes

Overseas Accreditation Assessment Feb 15, 2009

there is no test administered overseas as far as I know
there is a section on the website, sure you can find, where you can apply to have your accreditations assessed by a board, if you are a sworn/official translator, if you have abundant proof of records as professional translator/interpreter
check the website

They're administered by an organisation or company called IDP, on behalf of Naati, it seems:

The Application specifies that you should not contact the IDPs directly.
On page 15, you will find a list of overseas locations.
The only one in Europe seems to be in the Netherlands.
Good luck!
