I found the below FAQ in Victoria SS skilled migration page. I didn'd understand about the 2nd point " applicants applying under the 457 streamlined pathway
". anybody can explain exact meaning of that please.

Currently I am on 457 visa and working in SA from past 1.5 yrs. So I am eligible for IELTES waive?
Because I got 6.5 on each band and my SNOL required 7 in each section.

Are there any situations in which a higher IELTS/OET requirement may be waived?

All applicants must obtain at least a six in each band, however applicants who meet the following criteria are not required to meet a higher English language requirement as indicated on the occupation lists:

1.applicants who are currently working in their nominated occupation in Victoria and have done so for more than six months
2.applicants applying under the 457 streamlined pathway
3.applicants applying with a PhD.

Hi,

I have got my VIC SS approved under streamlined 457 and I had only 6.5 in one of the module. I got my SS approved within hours.

Thanks,
Murali

Yes I am currently working on a 457 visa in Victoria and you are eligible if you have at least band 6 on all 4 modules.
