Hey guys,

I just came across an interesting post on immi website, brings some relief for us, it says:

Note: Applicants with a nominated trade occupation in subclasses 175 and 176 who wish to lodge an eVisa application will not be stopped from completing the application even if the evidence they provide does not meet the new English language threshold requirements. Similarly, eVisa applications from all applicants of subclass 475 will continued to be accepted by the system even if the evidence they provide does not does not meet the new English language threshold requirements. However, applicants who fail to provide evidence of meeting the new threshold for the English language requirement will be refused as they will fail to meet the legislative criteria for a visa grant.

Okay it is confirmed by DIAC, you need to have your IELTS results before Logging ur visa application:

The migration laws are clear and there is no leeway in the English
Language Requirement at time of application.

Unfortunately your application is likely to be refused if the IELTS test
result is not dated before the application was lodged.

No way. You must pass the IELTS before lodging the application. If you apply onshore then an appeal might be possible in case of a refusal.

Hi all
I am expecting my IELTS result letter tomorrow and will apply after 2 or 3 days, “Mr.India” got a problem as he applied before IELTS result, I want to know what are the compulsory documents I must have before apply for visa, at the moment I have all documents I sent to ACS and expected IELTS result letter, is this fine to apply with these documents or I must get some other documents.
I have filled online visa form and found IELTS and assessment are basic requirements, am I going right?

I would request moderator to add a sticky post to opt out ruin other cases.

You should digest immi.gov.au completely. Out of the few strict requirements, i.e. <45 yo for GSM, proper IELTS is one of them.
Correct... and have tons of patience.. Which I lacked and got hit by immi. Thanks guys for pointing this out so that I can re apply without wasting time..
