Received 189 ITA on 23rd Aug, 2017 round. Now in the process of gathering docs to lodge VISA.
My wife is primary applicant and myself secondary applicant. we have claimed partner points. My wife ACS applied recently(Got +ve ACS on Agu 16th, 2017 for 261312). I had +ve ACS on Oct 16th, 2015 for 261311 which is going to be expired on Oct 15th, 2017. So I had again applid for ACS(261311) and got the +ve assessment on 30th Aug, 2017 by that time we have recieved ITA for 189 visa.
Now, we are in the process of preparing the docs for visa lodge. Can I submit my old and new ACS assessments for visa lodge or should I submit my new ACS when CO asks?. If I submit only my old ACS, who ever given the SD at that time for me left the organization recently. So can submit that old SD or will submit the new SD used for the new ACS assessment?.
Many members on this forum have mentioned that your English test scores and assessment results must be dated BEFORE your ITA. Receiving either of these after your invite may lead to a VISA rejection. Having said so, these were cases for primary applicants. But since you are claiming partner points; I am only assuming that will be case for you as well.
I feel submitting the new assessment report may lead to a rejection. Maybe you can just submit the old one as of now, and wait for the CO to ask for new one. You can contact the DIBP to clarify the situation, maybe.
Whatever you do, be absolutely sure before proceeding.
