Sounds like the standard bureaucratic response. I tried checking on some other forums and the answer i got was that the group 2613 has too many applicants. May be thats the reason for delay.

Yes, I had a short consultation with an agent (except for that I did everything on my own) and he advised me what documents to submit. So in the end i included:
- reference letters from 2 employments (same as I used for skills assessment)
- the application summary with summary of my experience, qualifications, estimation of available funds and a commitment letter (summary of possible institutes that i can work in, some job adverts)
- all my degree certificates
Also, I prepared my CV based on current Victorian biotechnology industry skills review by The Allen Consulting Group - I tried to fit my experience to what they need as good as possible. My CV had 4 pages and I have only 2 years of experience

HI Maverick...just a quick query. You mentioned you would be taking your family along with you. Does your spouse need to appear for IELTS if you are not claiming points for partner's skills?

Yes mate...spouse has to score minimum of 4.5 in IELTS even if you are not claiming for partner skills..every dependent above 18 years of age should prove that they have functional english capability...

I have attached the English Requirements file. Refer to this file as you can provide other evidence as well..

But if you think other adult members cannot get the requisite ielts scores, then you can pay $4250 per head, as II instalment of Visa. This fees is for the Aus Govt to train them on functional English, once you are there.

You may read about it on DIAC site.

Just a clarification here. If your spouse can prove that she has studied in an English medium school, IELTS is not required. I confirmed this with a few guys who already have got their PR. School/college certificates help in this case.
