Dear All,

I am planning to apply for the Skilled Independent Visa under subclass 189 end of July 2013 - (after my IELTS on 27th).

As I am adding my husband as dependent, is he also required to take an IELTS exam - If yes, what is the minimum score required?
For the applicant i.e Me - I know its atleast 7 in all modules

I checked a lot of sires..but the requirement for an IELTS and a score for dependent was not clear.

Thank you

I suggest you to ask your agency about it. Why not visit the official website of Australia's immigration department? immi[dot]gov[dot]au/skills/skillselect/index/visas/subclass-189/

It's ridiculous to make candidates take the test, then I realized it's a money making machine, you see governments and companies are the same, they look to get money out of peoples pocket even when they don't need to.

Secondary applicants over the age of 18 that are not exempt, need to show a functional level of English Language or they are liable to pay a second instalment fee of $4,885 AUD.

There's a number of ways to show this level, including providing an IELTS test result of over 4.5

Dear Adam Grey,

Thanks for the clarification. Since my wife is already a Masters Degree Holder in Business Administration, so can her educational certificates suffice or still she needs to go for the IELTs exam.

It depends upon proving the length of study (at least 5 years tertiary) and whether all the instruction was delivered in English. Sometimes it's just easier to undertake the IELTS.
Dear Adam,

It is 5 years and course was delivered in English.
Btw still thanks, I will also prefer for IELTs rather than going around; plus 4.5 is nothing compared to 7 for the actual applicant..:D
Thanks and really appreciated... :)
