You are awarded 10 extra points if you have a relative living in the state provided you meet all the other criteria also

You can check your points table here

Hi,

Once of the basic requirements for a 489 visa is 'Competent English' 6 is all modules.

Best of luck.

So meaning, i can not apply for that visa 489? for i have a 5.5 writing category score. please let me advice on that inquiry.
You cannot apply if even in a single module your score is below 6 and your writing score is 5.5
You should practice and give the test again to achieve 6 in all modules

Cheers
