Default Claiming partner points

So after reading all the topics on this matter on various forums, I am still confused about claiming partner points.
Only thing that is clear is that both applicant and partner need to be on MLTSSL for visa 189.
However, I am on the MLTSSL list code 263111, while my partner is on STSOL.

We will be applying for visa 190.
In the VIC SOL (state occupation list) only my occupation is present, but not my partner's.
Can i still claim the extra 5 partner points ?

Cheers.

Partner points are not 5 anymore instead it's 5 for skills assessment and 5 for English so 10 in total. So even if your job code isn't on the list you can still claim 5 for English.

YES
You can
As long as the partner has the skills assessment and the English score, you can claim the points
Itís not necessary for the ANzsco code to be in the particular state list

There are various opinions on this topic, i have heard that even MARA agents gave conflicting
opinions on this, some say you can some say that it is not possible.
On the other hand i have heard that some, claimed 5 points while submitting EOI for 190 ant the same was not possible for 189.
Yes, spouse has to go trough skill assessment.

Thanks NB.

Here is what 190 page from DHA says

Your spouse or de facto partner must also be an applicant for this visa and meet age, English and skill criteria

For you to be eligible for the award of these points your partner must be an applicant for the same visa subclass and must not be an Australian permanent resident or an Australian citizen. Additionally, you will need to provide evidence that when you were invited to apply for this visa that they:
were under 45 years old
had competent English

had nominated a skilled occupation that is on the same skilled occupation list as your nominated skilled occupation
had a suitable skills assessment from the relevant assessing authority for their nominated skilled occupation, and the assessment wasn’t for a Subclass 485 visa.

The bold text is the source of all the confusion.
Strictly speaking we are on different list MLTSSL vs STSOL, so no 10 points.

However, according to HomeAffairs we are both eligible for 190 since both professions are on the 190 list and either of us can apply for this visa.

Cheers,

Where does DHA say that you are eligible for Partner points since both professions are on 190 list. What exactly you mean by 190 list? Do you mean VIC list as here ? --> https://liveinmelbourne.vic.gov.au/m...t-for-victoria
