Default partner bonus points

Hi,

I want to claim 20 bonus points from my wife's qualification and she is having the necessary IELTS (to be a principal applicant). However, she's having a different occupation as mine, is that a problem? Like in Australia, your partner should have the same occupation.

Pls advise.

Nope.
So long as she has a recognized (exempt from assessment) qualification minimum level 7 or if not exempt it has been assessed as minimum level 7 and she meets the English language standard as a principal applicant then you can claim the 20 points.

Hi escapedtonz, btw, is it regardless if partner have occupation/experience not related to the degree earned? Like having an engineering degree (eligible for level7) but been having admistrative/clerical jobs? I believe skills/experience are not part of iqa assessment, kindly confirm.

The eoi points indicator does not ask the question whether a partner has experience matching their qualification.
A partner only has to meet 2 requirements for the application to get partner points :-
1. Meet the same English standard as a principal applicant.
2. Have a recognised (exempt from assessment) or nzqa assessed qualification.
Up to level 6 gains 10 points. 7 and over 20 points.

Yes if you want to claim partner points and only if assessment is required.

Hi escapedtonz,

On the immigration website, it is written that:

However, you may not have to take the IELTS test, if you can show us that you:

have a recognised qualification from a course taught entirely in English


So, is it compulsory for the partner to have IELTS score? Wouldn't the certificate from university saying "course taught entirely in English" do?
