Default Which visa to apply for NAATI CCL test?

Hello friends,

I have booked the Credentialed Community Language (CCL) Test in Hindi that is conducted by NAATI, in order to earn extra 5 points for Australian PR (Skilled Migration) purpose.

Anyone kindly guide me on below queries :

1) This test is only available in Australia, I understand that I have to acquire a visa to travel to Australia. Kindly suggest which Australian visa type should I apply for (I'm an Indian citizen, and will be applying for a visa from New Delhi).

2) Iím getting a feeling that this NAATI CCL test is usually given by applicants who are already physically present in Australia, in order to increase points for PR.

Is it a genuine/valid reason for non-Australians (specifically Indians) to travel all the way to Australia in order to pass the language test and earn 5 CCL points for Australian PR? Will consular officer in Australian High Commission (India) consider this (CCL test) a genuine reason for me to travel to Australia? Will my Australian visa be granted?

Or can I just travel to Australia on a normal visitor/tourist (600 visa type I think) visa, and sit for the CCL test (without declaring that I am going there for CCL test) ? Will this be legal? Even if I donít declare, sit for test and pass it, successfully get the PR, can it have an impact later?

Thanks,
Mohit

Hi Mohit,

Please find my answers for your queries as below.

1. Please apply tourist visitor visa 600 and you will get it granted at the max by 25 days.
2. You can very well mention the reason as Naati exam while applying this visa and moreover the chances of getting that visa granted is high when you mention this reason.

I applied and got the visa in 20 days, mentioning Naati exam as a reason, I actually uploaded the exam schedule document and the flight tickets to and fro, for additional proofs.

Regards,
Viji

You can apply for a normal visitor visa type 600 and travel to Australia for the test. If you feel that immigration department may not grant, then It would be better if you not declare this to get the visa. You can always declare that you want to visit Australia for tourism purpose. There won't be any issue later while claiming points.

Correct, there are two dialogues which you must interpret. If you’ve practiced interpreting the sample tests under real world conditions (e.g. beginning your response within a few seconds of the beep, using notes, getting it right the first time), and if you’ve found that easy, then you should be in a good position to pass the test.

Thanks Viji, have you given the CCL test? Was it Hindi?
If yes, kindly let me know your experience, tips or study material...
