Dear Everyone,

I am planning to consider my wife's experience as well for australian PR process. Can anyone tell me what are all the things should be done for this

As of now I have understood from the aus border.gov website is below, please add if I have missed or misunderstood any points.

  • Spouse should have completed a bachelor's degree in english medium
  • should have completed english eligibility test ( IELTS, PET, etc as per allowed tests) at scale 5 in each section if IELTS or equivalent score in other english tests (PETS, TOFEL, etc)
  • Should I do ACS for my wife's work experience as well?- Please advice

Your spouse should get her employment skills assessed. If your spouse's profession was ICT related, then it needs to be assessed positively by ACS.

- Must be on the same occupation list
- Positive skills assessment
- At-least competent English

First and foremost her occupation should also be listed under the same occupation list as yours(only then you can claim partner points)...then next comes English proficiency, and lastly you will have to get her experience assessed by ACS...

1. She need IELTS 6 minimum not 5 in all 4 LRSW
2. Need positive skills assessment in same List as your Anzsco code from appropriate agency

Age etc. I am sure you must have made sure that she meets

My wife has a Bachelor of Engineering degree in Information Technology.
She has given IELTS and has required points. Both of our occupations are on the same SOL.
For me to be able to claim 5 points, I need to get her qualification assessed.
The problem is she doesn't have work experience in ICT. She gained a MBA degree specialising in HR and has 5 years HR work experience.
Someone in the forum told me that to get positive assessment by ACS, you need to have at least 2 years of work experience in the nominated field. Is that true?
If not can I get her degree assessed and claim 5 points towards my 189 application?

IS any HR Anzsco code under MLTSSL ?
That may also be an option to explore

Sadly not. HR Manager is on STSOL.
So, is it true that you need to have atleast 2 years of work experience to be able to get positive skill assessment from ACS?

Hello Friends,

I have entered the EOI with 65 points. I have applied under Software engineer category. My Consultant has told me that I can get 5 points for my spouse if she get 6 Bands in IELTS and if she get her academic certificates assessed by Engineers Australia.

My wife got 6 bands in IELTs. She is currently doing her PDH in electrical engineering. To claim 5 points, is it required for my wife to have work experience or only assessment of Australia Engineers in work experience sufficient ?


Regards,
Dreamer.

Hi
As long as I know I think your wife should have a valid job and she should have worked in the last ten years for atlest some years that's depends on their qualification and job code. I am not familiar with your wife's job code. Please check with relavant people sorry.

The rules are very clear
She needs to have her skills assessment done, not her education

If the skills assessment agency is ready to certify her positive for that particular Anzsco code under which she is applying, then no problem



had a suitable skills assessment from the relevant assessing authority for their nominated skilled occupation. Your partner’s nominated skilled occupation must be on the same skilled occupations list as your nominated skilled occupation.

Hello Experts,

I am planning to apply for PR 189 under anzsco 261313 - Software Engineer. I am planning to get my spouse assessed under anzsco 261399 - Software and Applications Programmers (nec) . I confirmed that both of these occupations are on MLTSSL list. However, in the list it says that 261399 is applicable only to 186 and 457. It does not mention 189(PT). Can I safely claim spouse points? I know that the requirement just says that the spouse occupation should be on the same list, and it is, but still thought of getting confirmed.
