457 - IELTS requirements

Hi all,

I am in the process of applying for immigration to Australia, on a temporary 457 visa in the capacity of a sponsored worker. I have completed my pre-migration TRA and TRA skills assessment and received my ARTC.

I have just received my IELTS results back, and have achieved an overall band of 5.5, (4.5 reading, 5 listening, 6.5 writing, 6.5 speaking). I was wondering if my application can still be successful, given that I have not achieved the minimum 5 on all sections. I was told my agent, that it may be possible to accept a 5.5 average score, provided I undertake an ELICOS course upon my arrival in Australia. I am hoping someone with experience in this area may be able to assist.

I would appreciate any feedback you may have.
