Default VISA Without IELTS?

Hi Guys, Can I Apply for the 175 VISA (Skilled VISA Independent) without my IELTS Results? If i can submit it after lodging the VISA Application what will be the situation?

Regards,
Kasun

Hi there,

Here's the checklist for paper applications: http://www.immi.gov.au/skilled/gener..._checklist.pdf

It looks like the IELTS test has to be submitted with your main application, not afterwards.

I guess if you apply without the results, they'll ask you for them.

Well.. Its supposed to be submitted with the application.. And your Score will have a date on it..
Why take a chance? What if your CO was feeling bit cranky...
Atleast give exam before applying, This way you can upload score later..

2. All I wanted know is I am done with my ACS assessment and booked the IELTS slots on Oct 31 so mean time can I apply for my visa application and then sumbit my IELTS results as and when it arrives ?.

Thanks in advance

It states "ensure Basic Eligibility Requirements are met at time of application"...so it looks like IELTS definitely has to be submitted with main application. Which is what I'd mentioned earlier. If you are still unsure, why not email one of the agents who post on here. You can contact them via their signatures.

Hi Dolly ,

Thanks for your quick response, yes check list says that IELTS results should be included but the fact which is confusing me is so many posts here states that they filed the application without IELTS results and sumbitted the IELTs results later , I am still in confusion and will search and mail one of the agents.

i dont suggest, someone got a rejection for the same reason, wait for a month, if u cant, be ready for ur application to be turned down
it depends on ur CO, if he/she has had a bad day, they will simply turn ur application down.. no point, its better to wait a month thn loosing so much money

Hmmm thank you very much anj and Dolly , I just wanted to inquire and as most of you I really love to wait rather being turned down , all I do now is preparing for IELTS and focusing on good results .

Thanks again
