Hi Experts,

My wife and I, both ar equally qualified with 5 years of experience each in IT. We have done the assessment of our skills from ACS. Without claiming spouse points we easliy get 65.
I m in a dillema whether to claim spouse points or not as I have heard that DIAC do does the employement verification and If I claim my spouse points then there verification may go for a longer period which could delay my Visa processing.

What do you guys recommend ? Any advice would be highly appreciated.

Hi Surender,

There is no need for Spouse skill assessment, as you are already qualifying. When you get a PR, automatically your spouse will also get the same PR privileges, then what is the need for doing an assessment separately.

There is no policy , that , if you have more points , you would be given more priority.

So , I would suggest you to go ahead as soon as possible before the dead line , if IELTS work is over.

Thanks Mansin for your reply!!.

We have already done the assessment for both . Should we go ahead and claim spouse's points ? My concern If I claim points and If DIAC picks our application for verification then it would be a long process of verification as skills of both will be verified. I think as you said there is no priority for 70 points over 65, I should not claim it.

Yes, also ACS assessment was required for only one of you. It is enough that the partner who is migrating along with the primary applicant , possess competent english. ie 6 over all band.

DIAC wouldnt do employment verification for your wife only for the main applicant.

The reason for employment verification is not to validate the skills assessment but to ensure you meet the DIAC requirements for recent work experience and work experience in the nominated occupation.

To claim extra points all they need is a valid skills assessment not for the person to actually be in work.

Like the others said, you can add her if you wish there shouldn't be job verification for your spouse so no worries. BUT then again, its actually not required at all in ur case as u r already getting 65 points, and adding more points will not give more weight and DIAC won't give you an special treatment for adding ur wife's points, so its kinda useless. In the end its up to you.

Hi guys,

a quick question on claiming points for partner's skills under 175.

I lodged my 175 application about a month ago and claimed 5 points for my wife's skills. Alltoghether we have 65 points. Her SOL occupation is an accountant. I've just realised today that an "aco****ant" occupation has been flagged for removal from SOL from 1 July 2012.

Any idea how the removal accountants occupation from SOL could impact my application? Can it impact the processing priority or the total points?

The question obviously assumes my occupation (i.e. main applicant) remains on SOL after 1 July 2012.

Thanks.

I am afraid that , it is mandate that the spouse skills be also there in SOL , since if the skill code is removed then , the criteria for claiming the spouse points would not be satisfied and automatically , DIAC will exclude the 5 points.

Seniors please confirm this better.

I have a quick question here..if i apply before 1stJuly under the Software Engineer code and after 1st july the code is removed from SOL, my application will be rejected?

Also if i claim points for the partner skills under the ICT BA code and if the code is removed after 1st july, will the 5 points stand rejected??

Thanks for your reply.

Hi Rinkesh,

First , if the Code gets removed from the SOL list, the Application does not get rejected , rather it falls into the next category ,which practically takes like ages to be viewed by DIAC.

Also , with respect to Partner skills , the same is applied ( The skill code , needs to be there in the SOL , in order to claim the points)

Didn't get you..what do u mean "falls into the next category"..
See if currently the Software Engineer code is in the SOL and I apply before 1st July, doesn't it mean that when my application is processed they will take into account when was the application lodged or rather they will consider the SOL which is applicable that point in time???

Hi Rinkesh,

We had a long thread , where this was being discussed. Actually there is a catch ... DIAC says , while your application is processed and not logged. So till the CO is allocated , it is a big gamble.
That is the reason , many of the people here are going to 176 instead of 175. I was under a wrong impression earlier and was thinking that 176 people are applying , since it is quite faster .. It is faster no doubt , but it is a bit risk free , thats why.

Mansin
