  1. Can someone clarify that in order to claim the additional 5 points for ‘Partner Skills’ does the partner need to sit the IELTS test if they hold a UK Passport? All other criteria is met - age, job is on skills list for 189 and will be assessed by appropriate authority (more expensive than the main applicant!) [emoji15] From the screen shots from the homeaffairs website I have taken I am under the impression that the test does not need to be taken if a UK passport is held... (Hoping I am right as it will save us £165 that we can put towards the qualifications being assessed instead!) Many thanks
  2. Hello, I was hoping to ask a question if I may please. I am a Chartered Accountant and my wife is a Special Education Teacher. We are applying for the 189 visa under her occupation. She has 60 points without me doing a skills assessment and would get an additional 5 if I did do one. Given not a lot of invitations go out regarding her occupation do you think she might have sufficient points without me doing a skills assessment ? Thank you, Dan
  3. Hello Every one, I am about to start an EOI for Subclass 189 under “Analyst Programmer” and expecting to meet the criteria based on my education and work experience after completing the assessment. If the assessment is positive I will have 60 points if I claim partner skills also. My partner has Bachelor Degree in Electronics and Communication Engineering and she worked as a Software Engineer for 2 Years and 9 Months. I would request you to share your thoughts on my following queries. 1) Can I claim that my partner has “has an occupation that is on the same skilled occupations list as your nominated occupation” and the chances of getting a positive result if I go for an assessment for her. 2) To claim the points for partner skills below is the definition provided in the Skill Select. You can claim partner skills if, when you are invited, your partner: · is under 50 years of age · has competent English · has an occupation that is on the same skilled occupations list as your nominated occupation · has been assessed by the relevant assessing authority as having suitable skills for their nominated occupation · is coming to Australia with you · is not an Australian citizen or permanent resident. So does this mean that it should meet all of them or partial fulfilment is enough with 2-3 requirements ? Any help would be appreciated. Thanks, Noble

    Partner Skills

    I'm looking for some advice on partner skills - does anybody know if in order to get the additional 5 points would my partner need to get a full skills assessment from VETASSESS (her occupation as an Environmental Health Officer is on the SOL) or is there a different process with her not being the main applicant? Thanks.
  5. Hello, We are thinking to apply for skilled migration to Australia, Mu hubby is a Soft: Engr and have 5 yrs experience and all other requirements. besides- I am a Computer Science graduate but i don't have experience in Software engineering. I have 2yrs experience in SEO and 7 months Teaching experience. I am also having a 4 months Graphic Design certificate soon. Now, May I show my Bachelor degree in Computer science education and Job experience assessment documents while submitting EOI??? :mad: may be I will not get point but will that work to show my qualification. may i take IELTS test??? Or I have to show nothing!! If I don't get my qualifications assesment how I can get higher study, or job after going to Australia (if everything goes well :rolleyes:) plz suggest me the best option!!!
  6. Hi all, In the old system (before July 2012), I found that for Partner Skills it said a positive skills assessment from the relevant assessing authority for their nominated occupation (nominated occupation is to be on the same version of the SOL as the main applicant) evidence of age to confirm that they are under 50 years of age evidence of competent English language level evidence of one of the following: that they meet the Australian study requirement in the last six months before applying that they have been employed in a skilled occupation for a period totalling at least 12 months in the last 24 months before applying whereas now in the new visa 190 rules, it says for Partner Skills You must provide evidence that your partner meets the requirements. This evidence must be: documents that prove your partner is 50 years of age or younger documents that prove your partner has at least competent English a positive skills assessment from the relevant assessing authority for your partner’s nominated occupation (your partner’s nominated occupation must be on the same Skilled Occupation List as your nominated occupation). Can anyone confirm that you don't have to prove the last bit of the blue section anymore (i.e. that they have been employed in a skilled occupation for a period totalling at least 12 months in the last 24 months before applying), as I need the 5 Partner Skill points, but am a Supply Teacher, and don't work full time........ Thanks.
